Bee populations are critical for ensuring a healthy environment. Please give today to build a healthier, more resilient future for bees in New Hampshire and beyond.

The NHBA provides competitive funding to promote the health, and improve overall hive management, in New Hampshire

Two focal areas for research funding are the NH Honey Bee Diagnostic Network where citizen science projects are developed, and funding for teams of beekeepers conducting research to improve honeybee health through external funding such as the USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Projects (SARE) program.
