Question and Answer Sessions for the 2021 ACR Reporting Cycle

In light of substantive changes that have been made to its Annual Certification and Data Collection Report (ACR) for the 2021 reporting cycle, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) will be conducting quarterly conference calls to respond to questions specifically related to the ACR. The quarterly conference calls are intended to serve as a forum for Certified CDFIs and other ACR stakeholders to ask questions about the ACR and its submission process.

Please note, the quarterly ACR conference calls are separate from the conference calls that the CDFI Fund’s Office of Certification, Compliance Monitoring and Evaluation (CCME)holds on a monthly basis to answer general questions regarding CDFI Certification and the Certification process.
