    DURHAM, NEW HAMPSHIRE — The Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire (Carsey School) is a resource for research and scholarship on public policy with a particular focus on applied research analysis of critical social, economic, and environmental issues facing families and communities. As part of this mission, the Carsey School manages the Financial Innovations Roundtable (FIR), a membership organization that creates cross-sector partnerships among conventional and non-traditional lenders and investors to provide low-income communities with increased access to capital and financial services. Most recently, the FIR held a convening with the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond focused on the ways in which Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) support community development. This award will pay for the Foundation’s membership in the Financial Innovations Roundtable, support for the recent convening and its work related to channeling DAF money into Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs).
