Location: Church Landing at Mill Falls
The Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) is conducting two Application Writing Workshops for its Tax Credit Program. The program grants state tax credits to nonprofit entities for affordable housing, economic development, and community development projects that benefit low- and moderate-income New Hampshire citizens. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to attend a workshop. CDFA will award up to $6 million in state tax credits this July.
Each workshop is an all-day event. The morning session will include an overview of the program, application requirements, and an introduction to CDFAs online Grants Management System. The afternoon session will give potential applicants the opportunity to meet with CDFA staff to discuss their projects, to get advice on the appropriateness of the project for Tax Credit funding, and to assess the organizations capacity to conduct the fundraising necessary for the projectҒs success. Lunch is provided. Attendees should bring sufficient information and project materials to the workshop such that productive discussions with, and assessment by, CDFA staff can take place.
Potential applicants should attend one of the following workshops:
- Thursday, February 7, 2013, Meredith, NH, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Church Landing, and
- Monday, February 11, 2013, Manchester, NH, 9:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m., PSNH Energy Park
