L5: Pre-Application

CDFA works with partners to advance new ideas, thinking and innovation in community economic development and clean energy efforts throughout New Hampshire. In doing so, we work closely with partners during the pre-application phase to understand their needs, align those needs with our technical assistance and financing resources, as well as make connections with other potential sources of support.

Much of this work takes place when partners are early on in exploring and developing a concept that solves a specific community need. Engaging CDFA in the pre-application stage of project development can help community leaders understand the technical and financial resources available, as well as help strengthen the project’s capacity for success by addressing any potential challenges early on.
