The New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority was also selected to receive a $2.5 million grant to launch a Community Navigator Pilot Program.

Funded through American Rescue Plan funding, the Community Navigator Program aims to provide $100 million to 51 organizations owned by veterans, women, people of color, those in rural communities and other groups that face hardships in accessing financial support.

“I am thrilled that the Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) was selected after a competitive process to receive a $2.5 million grant to launch SBA’s Community Navigator Pilot Program in New Hampshire,” said Bassett. “With this funding, through a hub and spoke model, CDFA will support New Hampshire-based entrepreneurs, focusing on underserved and rural communities.  The NH SBA looks forward to building a close collaboration with CDFA as they develop a program that will aid New Hampshire small business in accessing the critical resources they need to start, grow, build resiliency and thrive.”
