Center for Impact Finance

The Carsey School Center for Impact Finance (CSCIF) at the University of New Hampshire addresses the role that access to capital plays in turning the tide on widening income inequality and building a more sustainable future for our communities, the nation and the world. With a successful track record of working within communities and as respected national thought leaders in the field, CSCIF conducts original applied research, develops initiatives, designs programs, and implements financing products, projects, and policies that address societal challenges.

Financial Innovations Roundtable

The Financial Innovations Roundtable (FIR), creates cross-sector partnerships among conventional and non-traditional lenders, investors, and markets to provide low-income communities with increased access to capital and financial services. FIR is not only a think tank, it is a “think-do” tank. Some of the most successful ideas developed at the FIR have been implemented, resulting in new tools, policies and practices that have resulted in millions of dollars being directed into investments in affordable housing, small and minority businesses, community facilities and other community development efforts.
