The primary outcome of the NHIRC is to attract, grow, and retain companies in the state.

The NHIRC is now accepting applications for spring 2017. Interested applicants should submit a Letter of Intent to NHIRC.info@unh.edu by Thursday, May 4, 2017, 5:00 pm EST. The NHIRC is using a new internal secure portal system, InfoReady Review, for the spring 2017 solicitations. Once a Letter of Intent is submitted to the email address above, an email will be sent to the applicant with instructions for setting up an account on the InfoReady Review system. Applications (including cover sheet, conflict of interest form, proposal narrative, budget sheet, and proposal outcomes form) must be submitted via the InfoReady Review system.

Please note that financing is contingent upon funding by the New Hampshire state government and is subject to change at any time without prior notice.
