May 21, 2019 – The New Hampshire Business Finance Authority (BFA) is honored to have received special recognition by the Regional Economic Development Center (REDC) for their $100,000 contribution to REDC’s NH New Americans Loan Fund.

“Being recognized by one’s peers is one of the best honors anyone can receive,” stated BFA’s Executive Director James Key-Wallace. “We are proud of the strong relationship we’ve built with the REDC. Both of our organizations are committed to creating an economic vibrancy for New Hampshire that includes all citizens. I am confident that we will continue to work together and provide these critical services to New Hampshire.”
