Loans and education create opportunity and transform lives
The New Hampshire Community Loan Fund seeks out those places in the Granite State’s economy where the right types of financing – or the right combination of loan plus education, training, or technical advice – can open doors of opportunity for people with low and moderate incomes.
ROC-NH™ helps homeowners and landlords convert manufactured housing parks into communities that are cooperatively owned and governed by residents. ROC-NH’s fixed-rate financing, educational and technical assistance help homeowners build equity, create stability, develop leadership and strengthen their resident-owned communities.
Homeowners in (or buying a home in) resident-owned communities or on their own land can get fixed-rate purchase, refinance, cash-out refinance, and home equity loans through our award-winning Welcome Home Loans.
Our business financing supports the creation and retention of quality jobs in New Hampshire by offering loans, investments and training to business owners, including those considered too small or too risky for other lenders. Business Builder loans connect business owners with the financing and expertise they need to succeed in a changing marketplace. Vested for Growth investments, for high-growth, high-margin businesses, meet the market between banks and venture capital firms. Our Farm Food Initiative helps farmers and food producers meet the growing demand for locally produced food.
