We turn investments into loans and education to create opportunity and transform lives across New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Community Loan Fund collaborates with a wide range of donors and lenders, and with business, nonprofit and government partners. Together, we provide the financing and support that people with low and moderate incomes need to have affordable housing. Quality jobs. Child care and early education for their children. And to become financially independent.

We were established in 1983, one of the first Community Development Financial Institutions in the U.S., and have received the highest honor in our field, the Wachovia NEXT Award for Opportunity Finance.
