Going to the 2023 OFN Conference? Have a Question for the Fund? Now's Your Chance to Ask!

Going to the 2023 OFN Conference? Have a Question for the Fund? Now's Your Chance to Ask!

It’s not every day that hundreds of Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and mission-driven lenders gather in the CDFI Fund’s neighborhood! We would like to take this opportunity to connect with you at the conference.

Beginning October 16, 2023, members from across the CDFI industry will gather in Washington, DC for the Opportunity Finance Network’s (OFN’s) 2023 Annual Conference.

During the week, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) will hold a series of office hours. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with program, compliance, reporting and technology staff to ask questions about compliance and reporting systems, the Awards Management Information System (AMIS), as well as CDFI Fund programs. This is a chance for participants to meet one-on-one with CDFI Fund staff to ask specific questions, or just network.

Please see the CDFI Fund Office Hour schedule below to see those times that specific members of CDFI Fund program teams and service units will be available for discussion. Drop by at any time during the office hours to ask questions— all office hours will take place in the DuPont Room on the Terrace Level at the Washington Hilton.
