CDFA to Hire New Director of Housing and Community Development

CDFA is looking to hire a new director to lead the organization’s housing and community development efforts through its administration of the federal Community Development Block Grant program. The Director of Housing and Community Development will work closely with municipal and nonprofit partners to maximize the impact of New Hampshire’s annual allocation of block grant resources and find creative solutions to community development challenges.

The position is currently held by Shelley Hadfield who will be moving on from CDFA at the end of October. Ms. Hadfield has been an invaluable member of the CDFA team. Her thoughtful, creative and solutions-oriented approach to advancing community development initiatives – both during her time at CDFA and as a consultant to municipalities and nonprofits – has resulted in significant, long-lasting impacts on communities throughout New Hampshire.

CDFA is actively seeking a new housing and community development leader to manage CDFA’s current and future housing and community development programs; expand the reach, impact and use of these programs; work with partner organizations to maximize and leverage development resources; and find creative and innovative solutions.

Additional details on the position and qualifications can be found here. Interested applicants should contact Jen Campanaro, VP Account Executive, Community & Economic Development at Smith and Wilkinson: / 207-289-3136.

CDFA plans to hire additional staff this fall as the organization continues to build on its capacity to serve New Hampshire communities, nonprofits and businesses and grow its impact throughout the state.
