Free information session for municipal planning and land use officials on NH Municipal Technical Assistance Grant program
WOLFEBORO — The Eastern Lakes Region Housing Coalition and Plan NH will present an information session on the New Hampshire Municipal Technical Assistant Grant (MTAG) program on Tuesday, Feb. 28 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Huggins Hospital Medical Arts building’s Education Center in Wolfeboro.
Free onsite parking and refreshments will be available. In the event of inclement weather, the session will be held on Thursday, March 2, same location and time.
This will be Plan NH’s second round of funding for its MTAG Program, which, through a competitive application process, awards municipalities with grants from $2,500 – $10,000 for technical assistance (i.e., a planning consultant) to assist with increasing housing choices and options.
Funds may be used for reviewing current zoning, writing new regulations or re-writing existing regulations so that the community is more housing-friendly. The grants are aimed to develop regulations that lead to more housing options for households with changing and/or diverse needs and income levels. The grant requires a 25 percent cash match from the municipality, as well as community outreach and engagement in the process.
Town officials, planners and consultants in the field are all welcome to attend to learn about the application and to discuss their own pending applications, projects and goals. The application is due electronically to Plan NH by 5 p.m. on April 5, with decisions made by mid-May, and final agreements in place by June 30.
This session, based in the eastern Lakes Region, supplements two other information sessions, the first to be held at New Hampshire Housing, 32 Constitution Drive, in Bedford on Feb. 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. The Mount Washington Valley Housing Coalition will host an MTAG information session with LeBlanc as guest speaker on March 6, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Mount Washington Valley Technology Village in North Conway.
