New Hampshire Community Loan Fund

The New Hampshire Community Loan Fund (Community Loan Fund) is a non-profit financial organization that turns investments from individuals and institutions into fixed-rate loans and education that create opportunity and transform the lives of people with low and moderate incomes. We collaborate with a wide range of business, nonprofit and government partners to provide the fair loans and support people need to own homes, have quality jobs and child care, and become financially independent.


Client Population

The Community Loan Fund was founded on the principle that the lack of access to credit is a barrier that keeps low-income people from achieving greater self-sufficiency. So we serve low- to moderate-income individuals and families both directly and indirectly, by supporting the people and businesses creating affordable housing and quality jobs, and supplying child care. Seventy percent of our borrowers live in rural areas. Although we don’t track the gender and ethnicity of our borrowers, we serve a broad range of clients from all backgrounds.


The Community Loan Fund has a 26-year history of helping transform the lives of people with low incomes. We have converted 92 of the state’s manufactured housing parks to resident-owned communities, affecting more than 5,000 families. Our programs have helped create or retain 6,241 affordable housing units, 2,839 child care or school spaces, and 1,384 jobs. We have made more than 350 loans to microbusiness owners. The $117 million we have loaned has leveraged $381.5 million in project value.
