This paper describeds the development of a fiscal impact tool for New Hampshire communities (FIT-4-NH). FIT-4-NH belongs to a family of computer-generated fiscal impact assessment models designed to estimate the impacts to local government revenues and expenditures that result from economic changes. In the past, work in this area has centered on the completion of county-level models for the midwestern states. FIT-4-NH is unique in that it was designed for rural community-level use in the northern New England region of the country.
