Cost sharing &
are a winning
NCIC has provided over $1,700,000 in grant funds to over 300 businesses in
Vermont and New Hampshire, supporting over 2,200 jobs.
NCIC will help you fill a financial gap to preserve and create jobs in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and North Country of New Hampshire.
Throughout the years, NCIC has provided technical assistance to hundreds of businesses. Funds are available for eligible businesses and nonprofits to support the cost of outside professional services to assist with:
- Business planning and coaching
- Creative services
- Permitting assistance
- Website development
- Marketing and branding support
- Architectural and engineering design
- Feasibility and market studies
- And more
In New Hampshire, businesses with 5 or fewer full-time equivalent employees and whose owner meets certain household income guidelines are eligible for up to $2,000 in services at no cost to the business. These funds are made available through a New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) Micro-enterprise grant.
In Vermont and New Hampshire, funds are available for businesses through the USDA Small Business Cost Share Program. Businesses with fewer than 50 employees and gross profit under $1,000,000 are eligible. The grant could cover as much as 65% of the project cost with the business cost-share component at 35%.

Phlume Media was instrumental in making Adaptive Motorsports and Wellness aware of the Northern Community Investment Corporation (NCIC) support and services. Adaptive Motorsports and Wellness signature product, VXP2.com, needed a web site and filming in order to share a visual of the benefits of our unique product and services. NCIC Business Programs Administrator Aimee Quimby worked with us to secure needed funding to share the best kept secret from the Great North Woods to a growing Global Market … during the pandemic no-less.

NCIC funding has helped us immensely over the last year and a half. With their support, we were able to rebrand, redesign and refresh our print collateral, design custom items for our gift shop and hire professional consultancy during phases of strategic planning and other development initiatives. Now our organization proudly boasts a new look which properly reflects our new momentum as well as the development support to see us through this phase of exciting growth!
