Today, New Hampshire’s Congressional Delegation announced that the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) has awarded federal grant funds to 13 development projects throughout the Granite State. These grants, which total more than $2.2 million, will help to spur economic and community development in the North Country and other rural regions around the state. U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, secured $5 million in additional funding for the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) in appropriations legislation for fiscal year 2018. President Trump’s budget had proposed eliminating the NBRC entirely. Last month in the House, Congresswoman Kuster introduced the Northern Border Regional Commission Reauthorization Act of 2017, bipartisan legislation that would continue funding for the Northern Border Regional Commission (NBRC) and extend its authorization for five years.
