Making Matters NH was awarded $105,000 in tax credits from the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority. The NH CDFA is the state’s community economic development agency and provides tax credit funding to support local community economic development goals, build the capacity of the state’s nonprofit sector, and support economic development across the state.
Making Matters NH will leverage this funding to support makers, artists, entrepreneurs, and innovators throughout the Concord region. The organization will purchase advanced equipment including CNC machines, a plasma cutter, welding equipment, an embroidery machine, and a long-arm quilter that will allow community members to develop new skills, prototype new ideas, and launch new businesses.
Making Matters NH operates an 8,500 square foot makerspace and shared workspace in Penacook Village. The space includes wood and metal shops, prototyping and electronics labs, and fiber arts and photography studios, as well as private offices and shared workspace. The mission of Making Matters NH is to develop a safe, fun and collaborative space supporting makers of all ages and skill-sets coming together to teach, learn, create, explore and prosper. We are creating a strong and sustainable organization that contributes to Concord’s regional economy and builds a more vibrant community.
Making Matters NH is looking to partner with New Hampshire businesses that support making the greater Concord region a more innovative, creative, entrepreneurial, and healthy community.
