Targeted Communities

With New Hampshire Housing's previous mortgage programs, you generally needed to be a first-time homebuyer in order to qualify for a loan, unless you purchased in one of the state's 15 "targeted communities." While that provision is not in force with our current programs, the targeted communities offer higher income limits for buyers using our new mortgage products, as these are still areas where purchase prices tend to be higher than in other areas of the state.

The 15 targeted communities are:

  • Berlin
  • Claremont
  • Concord
  • Dover
  • Goffstown
  • Laconia
  • Lancaster
  • Littleton
  • Manchester
  • Newmarket
  • Pittsfield
  • Portsmouth
  • Rochester
  • Somersworth
  • Whitefield
