CRDC is pleased to announce the creation of a new Community Grant Program specifically for municipalities or non-profit organizations located in CRDC's core lending area.
"The Community Grant Program's primary focus is to support projects and programs that lead to job creation/retention and enhance a community's tax base while providing a public benefit," said Stephen Heavener, CRDC's Executive Director. "CRDC expects projects to be funded with a grant to have a strong likelihood that CRDC funding may be a component of the total project financing."
Eligible applicants include: municipalities or non-profits located in Sullivan and Merrimack Counties and the following Hillsborough County communities: Bedford, Amherst, Goffstown, New Boston, Weare, Mont Vernon, Dunbarton, Manchester and Hollis.
Grant Amount: Grants will be awarded between $2,500-$5,000. CRDC expects the applicant to seek other funding based on the scale of the project/program.
Eligible Activities: Feasibility studies, job creation/retention activities, expansion of property tax base, community facilities and other projects that promote economic development and help raise the quality of life in the community. Only programs or projects that have a defined completion timeline will be considered.
Applications are due by 5:00pm EST on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 and can be emailed to Chris Wellington at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Award decisions will be announced by March 1st, 2018.
