The Northern Border Regional Commission has announced a new round of funding for economically strapped Canadian border regions of New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.

The commission plans Aug. 1 to begin accepting applications for the money and to announce how it will award the $1.25 million available by Sept. 30.

Last year, the NBRC awarded seven grants, totaling $1.3 million to the four states.

The commission says eligible projects must develop the infrastructure of the region; assist in providing job skills and employment related education; or provide basic health care and other public services for areas that are severely economically distressed.
