2017 Economic & Infrastructure Development Investments

IMPORTANT: All 2017 EID Applications are due by 5:00pm on June 2, 2017



The online application portal is designed to be self-explanatory.  If you have trouble completing it or have questions please contact Christine Frost at 603-369-3001.  NOTES:

  • You will be required to create a password. Each email address may only submit one application. (We will be working to correct this in future years)
  • If you are NOT the authorizing official, you will put in their contact information and they will be forwarded an email to create their own account.  After you have completed the application as the 'primary' contact and finish it, the authorizing official will recieve an email to review, sign and submit the application.  
  • The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance Number is 90.601
  • All federal grant require a DUNS number. If your organization does not currently have a DUNS number click here (it may take 2-3 businesses days to obtain one). 
  • You may upload as many letters of support or other documents that you wish by adding documents.
  • All the documents that are required to be uploaded with the application are available below - many, such as the SF424 will need to be completed first and then uploaded as a pdf.  
  • DO NOT wait until the last minute to apply - the application portal will close at 5:00pm on June 2, 2017.  You will not have access to apply after then. You can start an application today and work on it over time. There is no time out in the software and you can save it and come back at any time.
  • The person who is the 'authorized' person is the only person that can hit the submit button.
  • You are NOT required to use the online portal - but we believe it has been designed to make the process easier for the user. You may still submit a hard copy (please DO NOT submit both) by using the documents below.

The following list of items will make up the entire application:
