As we get deeper into 2021, I have heard from many of you asking when the application periods for the CDFI Fund’s various programs will open. I understand that in this difficult economic climate our programs are needed now more than ever. I also understand concerns that I have heard about the possibility that CDFIs and other community development organizations may have to work on multiple applications at the same time.
Update February 11, 2021: The Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) staff will hold an informational pre-application webinar for the CDFI Rapid Response Program on Thursday, February 18, 2021. Topics covered will include setting up your critical SAM.gov and Grants.gov accounts, adjusting your organizational profile in the Awards Management Information System (AMIS), and other ways your organization can prepare in advance for the FY 2021 application round.
