CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Gov. Chris Sununu's $100 million housing investment fund has been approved.

The fund, paid for with federal American Rescue Plan money that Sununu once opposed, will be used to provide grants to developers for multifamily housing projects, incentives for communities that move quickly with permitting, and money for demolishing vacant buildings.
