Funding Conservation and Land Use Planning

New Hampshire has only grant programs to further land conservation in the state. Funding for these programs comes from a variety of sources. Funding for the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program, an independent state authority, comes from a fee on real estate transactions. The Aquatic Resources Mitigation Fund, a fund within the Department of Environmental Services, uses fees from developers who wish to develop wetlands. The funds collected from the fee go to wetland restoration projects of varying kinds. Finally, the conservation license plate is a state program designed to provide funding for land conservation programs.
