Will Stimulus Package Trickle Down
to New Hampshire’s Low-Income Families?

Manchester, N.H. (Feb.9) – Southern New Hampshire University’s School of Community Economic Development continues its 2008-2009 Speakers Series with National Community Action Foundation Executive Director David Bradley discussing how the White House’s stimulus package will impact New Hampshire’s Home Energy and Home Weatherization programs on Friday, Feb. 13, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Webster Hall. Mr. Bradley will also discuss the intersections of Community Economic Development initiatives and the future of Community Action. The series is free and open to the public.

As the principle author of the Community Services Block Grant, which provides the core funding to the nation's Community Action Agency network, Bradley has enabled CAAs to leverage nearly $9 billion dollars in additional federal, state, local and private resources. 

CAAs such as the Home Energy Assistance and Home Weatherization programs are integral parts to the $550 billion in “new spending” contained in the stimulus bill. This will have a direct impact on many of New Hampshire’s low-income working families.

The 2008-2009 Speaker Series will cover a wide range of CED topics, including cooperative and credit unions, the role of community action in CED, community development finance and capital markets, and more. Each speaker will deliver an hour-long lecture focusing on the work that intersects with the movement of community economic development.

The series will be streamed live at http://www.snhu.edu/2175.asp.


Speakers Series Schedule:

·         March 13, 2009 - John Nelson, Wall Street Without Walls

·         April 17, 2009 - Harold Simon, National Housing Institute/Hands Inc./Community Asset Preservation Corporation
