Last summer, the Nottingham School Board went through an extensive process to apply for State of NH Building Aid to reduce the cost to Nottingham tax payers. If the project is awarded State Building Aid, it would reduce the construction costs by approximately 30%. The State anticipates announcing awards in late spring 2021.

The figures above do not assume any State of NH Building Aid funding.
