CDFA partners with Deo Mwano Consultancy to help guide future investments in Manchester Neighborhood

CONCORD, N.H. – The New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) announced today that it has engaged with Deo Mwano Consultancy (DMC) to develop a feasibility study that will shape a future one-time funding opportunity in Manchester.

DMC will engage with local community members and leaders to advance a feasibility study which will identify community needs and areas of interest. The feedback from the study will create the foundation for the investment of $300,000 in grant resources into nonprofit organizations, community coalitions, and groups dedicated to serving youth in the Center City of Manchester. These investments will specifically focus on those serving high-risk, underserved, and low-income children and youth.

“We are excited to partner with DMC to engage with community members throughout the City Center of Manchester to understand the diverse needs and interests within the neighborhood,” stated Katy Easterly Martey, Executive Director, CDFA. “We recognize the potential for this community-driven engagement and investment of resources to be transformative in its impact.
