About the New Hampshire Community Center Investment Program
CDFA is the administrator of the New Hampshire Community Center Investment Program which will provide resources to nonprofits and municipalities to improve community spaces across the state. This investment of federal American Rescue Plan Act resources is an opportunity to make deeper impacts within New Hampshire communities with one-time, strategic investments in critical infrastructure.
The Community Center Investment Program aligns with CDFA’s mission to annually invest state and federal resources to support meaningful community economic development projects across New Hampshire. CDFA’s resources increase access to affordable childcare, help strengthen Main Streets, create healthy and safe affordable housing, increase energy efficiency, improve public facilities, and create new jobs. In the past few years, CDFA has also supported nonprofits, municipalities, businesses and microenterprises through the COVID-19 pandemic by deploying additional federal CARES Act resources into New Hampshire communities.
