General Candidate Qualifications and Responsibilities:

The CDFI Fund and F2 Solutions require Reviewers and Alternates to have considerable expertise in community and economic development finance sectors such as affordable housing, small business, microfinance, and commercial real estate financing; financing of community-based organizations; and development service activities; or have prior experience serving as a successful CDFI Program or NACA Program application reviewer.

CDFI Program Overview

Through the CDFI Program, the CDFI Fund invests in and builds the capacity of CDFIs to serve low-income people and communities lacking adequate access to affordable financial products and services. The CDFI Fund invests in certified CDFIs by awarding Financial Assistance awards to applicants who have demonstrated the financial and managerial capacity to provide financial products and services to a low-income target market and to leverage additional resources effectively. Through Technical Assistance grants, the CDFI Fund enables certified CDFIs and emerging entities working toward certification to build their capacity as lending institutions.

In FY 2014, the Healthy Food Financing Initiative-Financial Assistance awards will serve as an additional funding opportunity under the CDFI Program for eligible CDFIs that express an interest in expanding their financing activities that increase access to healthy food.

NACA Program Overview

In 2004, the CDFI Fund introduced the NACA Program, which was specifically designed to encourage the creation and strengthening of CDFIs that primarily serve Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities (Native Communities). Organizations funded serve a wide range of Native Communities, and reflect a diversity of institutions in various stages of development from organizations in the early planning stages of creating a CDFI, to tribal entities working to certify an existing lending program, to established CDFIs in need of further assistance. The CDFI Fund awards both Financial Assistance and Technical Assistance awards under the NACA Program.
