"The public library requires nothing of its visitors: no purchases, no membership fees, no dress code. You can stay all day, and you don’t have to buy anything. You don’t need money or a library card to access a multitude of on-site resources that includes books, e-books and magazines, job-hunting assistance, computer stations, free Wi-Fi, and much more. And the library will never share or sell your personal data." Excerpt from "HUMANITIES" , published by the National Endowment for the Humanities, written by Jennifer Howard.

CDFA Awards More Than $11.5 Million in Community Center Investment Program Resources to New Hampshire Nonprofits and Municipalities
Funds to Support Meaningful Community-Based Projects Across the State
CONCORD, N.H. – The New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) announced today that it had awarded more than $11.5 million in Community Center Investment Program resources to New Hampshire nonprofits and municipalities advancing community-based projects. These funds allow for deeper impacts within New Hampshire communities with one-time, strategic investments in critical infrastructure.
Community Center Investment Program resources will support the enhancement of current indoor and outdoor facilities, as well as the construction of new spaces, that have proven to be inclusive, open to the public, and foster a culture of health and wellbeing in the communities they serve.
“We saw tremendous demand for Community Center Investment Program resources and look forward to working with organizations across the Granite State to advance projects that are meeting the diverse, multifaceted needs of their communities,” stated Katy Easterly Martey, Executive Director, CDFA.“Projects awarded resources have demonstrated a strong benefit to their community by providing opportunities for residents to be active, receive essential services and engage with fellow residents in civic activities,” continued Easterly Martey. “These investments will help nonprofits and municipalities improve and create spaces that are incredibly important for the health and vibrancy of New Hampshire’s communities.”
The Governor and Executive Council approved this investment of federal American Rescue Plan Act State Fiscal Recovery Funds on December 21, 2022. The Community Center Investment Program is being administered in coordination with the Governor’s Office for Emergency Relief and Recovery.
CDFA annually invests resources to support meaningful community economic development projects across New Hampshire and build strong communities. To learn more about CDFA, its impact on New Hampshire communities, and available funding resources, visit www.nhcdfa.org.
