The Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) is committed to
making its Capacity Building Initiative a comprehensive source of trainings and
reference materials for Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs). Building
upon that commitment, the CDFI Fund has added a new Capacity Building Initiative
Resource Bank to its website. The Foreclosure Solutions Resource Bank will be an
essential tool for CDFIs navigating the intricacies of foreclosure intervention.
The Foreclosure Solutions
Resource Bank provides links to training opportunities, expert sources,
and reference materials to help CDFIs improve their understanding of foreclosure
intervention counseling and learn how to effectively implement a counseling program
in their communities. The Resource Bank was compiled through the Capacity Building
Initiative’s Foreclosure Solutions training series, administered by NeighborWorks®
In addition, new supplemental webinars and reference materials have been added to
the Capacity Building Initiative’s
Financing Healthy Food Options Resource Bank, also available on the CDFI
Fund’s website. The new webinars cover topics ranging from how to underwrite small
and emerging farms to how to predict the market demand for healthy food retail.
The Financing Healthy Food Options training series is administered by the Opportunity
