State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program

Helping New Hampshire cities, towns and school districts improve their cybersecurity.

The State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP) is funded by the U.S. Federal Government within the Infrastructure and Investment Jobs Act (IIJA) specifically, by Title VI-Cybersecurity – Subtitle B – State and Local Cybersecurity Improvement Act.

The State of New Hampshire’s SLCGP has been formed to coordinate the investments resulting from the federal funds and to manage the projects and other components resulting from the program.

The New Hampshire Cybersecurity Planning Committee formed in October 2022 and wrote the New Hampshire SLCGP Cybersecurity Plan. The Plan was submitted to DHS/CISA and has been approved.

MFA reduces cyber risk by requiring users to provide two or more verification factors to access an application or an online account.
