The Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) has announced its Catalyst Program grant round (formerly State Economic & Infrastructure Development Investment Program) for 2023, and things are moving quickly. Municipalities, political subdivisions, and non-profit entities in Cheshire County are eligible for grants of up to $1 million for infrastructure and $500,000 for non-infrastructure proposals. For the 2023 round, proposals from Cheshire County entities are for 80% federal and 20% local match as compared to a 50-50 ratio in prior rounds. Mandatory Letters of Interest (LOIs) are required by 5:00 p.m. on April 21, 2023, with applications (by invitation only) to be submitted by June 2, 2023. Due to the fast pace of this timeline, the County of Cheshire, Monadnock Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), and Southwest Region Planning Commission (SWRPC) have agreed to co-sponsor an information session scheduled for March 20, 2023, at noon at Delegation Hall in the Cheshire Historic County Courthouse located at 12 Court Street, Keene, NH. Both in-person and remote attendance via Zoom will be accommodated.
