Empowering America's ECONOMICALLY Distressed Communities

What does the CDFI Fund Do?

The Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) plays an important role in generating economic growth and opportunity in some of our nation’s most distressed communities. By offering tailored resources and innovative programs that invest federal dollars alongside private sector capital, the CDFI Fund serves mission-driven financial institutions that take a market-based approach to supporting economically disadvantaged communities. These mission-driven organizations are encouraged to apply for CDFI Certification and participate in CDFI Fund programs that inject new sources of capital into neighborhoods that lack access to financing.

Each business financed, each job created, and each home built represents a critical step in the transformation of a life, a family, and a community. This is real change. This is the CDFI Fund. Discover More >
