CDFA works with partners to advance new ideas and innovation in community development, economic development and clean energy throughout New Hampshire.

Ideas to Innovation (i2i)

The Ideas to Innovation program is designed to provide resources to support emerging, innovative approaches to community and economic development challenges that benefit New Hampshire communities, deliver actionable results and serve as a replicable model. The focus of the program shifts each year based on community needs, evolving trends and feedback from partners.

Community Economic Development Capacity Building Program

Nonprofits in your community can take advantage of the Community Economic Development Capacity Building Program which is focused on providing a one-time infusion of capital at a pivotal point in an organization’s development. The goal is to strengthen organizational infrastructure, enhance existing programs or develop new capacity. These resources enable grant recipients to deepen their mission by delivering increased value and meaning to the communities they serve.
