The Capacity Building Initiative will help the CDFI Fund achieve its mission by ensuring CDFIs have the capacity to meet the needs in their communities.

The CDFI Fundís Preserving and Expanding CDFI Minority Depository Institutions series will address the unique challenges facing CDFI Minority Depository Institutions. Provided by Deloitte Financial Advisory Services, the program will provide advanced training and technical assistance for CDFI MDIs, and MDIs working toward becoming certified as a CDFI, to build their capacity to provide community development services to their target markets.

Organizations will also have access to a Virtual Resource Bank containing research and tools related to the seriesí training topics. Course training materials, third-party expert documents, and other resources will be made available to the public.

The series will include:

  • Training: In-person and online training will be provided on topics such as leadership development, capitalization, organizational transformation, and other relevant subjects. Specific training locations and dates are to be determined.

  • Technical Assistance: Technical assistance will be available to CDFIs that participate in the in-person training sessions. More specific guidelines for the technical assistance component of this series are currently under development.
  • Webinars: Webinars will be provided later in 2014. The webinars will be developed based upon feedback from the participants of the live trainings. More information on the webinar topics and dates will be provided when available.


Training and technical assistance opportunities will be made available to certified CDFI MDIs as well as MDIs working toward becoming certified as CDFIs.
