Housing Awareness Program
This program was launched as an innovative means by which to address the restrictive local regulatory environment faced by many projects in many communities. By collaborating with business leaders, New Hampshire Housing helped to establish a series of regional housing coalitions throughout the state. These coalitions provide education for local officials, advocate for positive regulatory change, as well as community engagement.

“Over the next five years, New Hampshire Housing will seek to increase the number and types of supportive housing throughout the state. We recognize there is a substantial need for this housing and its services, which was heightened by the opioid crisis and accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic.”
Foster Youth to Independence Program
Participating as a landlord in the Foster Youth to Independence program has been a positive experience. A 19-year-old voucher recipient moved into one of our properties. He has proven to be a responsible resident who pays his rent on time, respects the lease and is a good neighbor. This program provides landlords the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of youth who are transitioning into adulthood and desperately need stable housing that they can afford.
Housing Choice Voucher Program
“Having housing assistance has been a factor in my life that my family and I are incredibly thankful for,” wrote Corrine in a scholarship essay. “Since my mother’s cancer diagnosis, the anxiety of not being able to afford a decent place to live would run through my head… [now] I am able to focus on my life and educational career.”
