Municipal Grant Program – Planning and Zoning

The InvestNH Municipal Planning & Zoning grants makes $5 million available to municipalities, providing grants to analyze and update their land use regulations to help increase housing development opportunities. This portion of InvestNH is facilitated by the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority (NHHFA) and has been named the Housing Opportunity Planning (HOP) Grants Program. With awarded funds, municipalities can directly or seek outside services to study zoning or other regulatory causes of a lack of affordable housing, identify potential changes to local land use regulations, and/or establish or update those regulations in response to those findings.
