Seven New Hampshire projects are sharing in $1.1 million in funding to generate economic and community developments in the North Country.

Gov. Maggie Hassan and U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen announced the grants from the Northern Border Regional Commission on Tuesday.

The recipients are the Franconia Ski Club and the state-owned Cannon Mountain Ski Area, the town of Northumberland, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation, TwinState MakerSpace Inc., River Valley Community College, the Grafton County Economic Development Council, and Plymouth State University.

Hassan's office says the Northern Boarder Regional Commission is a federal-state partnership that was created by the U.S. Congress in 2008 to help alleviate economic distress and encourage job creation in northern Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York.
