APPLICATION WEBINARS

On April 30 and May 2, 2019, the CDFI Fund conducted two live webinars to provide applicants with an overview of the FY 2019 BEA Program application and a forum to ask questions. Applicants that were unable to join one of the webinars may view the presentation and listen to the audio file from one of the webinars via the links below.

The CDFI Fund has made available a pre-recorded webinar to demonstrate the electronic application submission process in AMIS and has a comprehensive instruction manual to guide applicants through the technical aspects of using AMIS to complete their electronic applications. Please note that the webinar was originally recorded for the FY 2017 electronic application, however the display and functionalities for the FY 2019 electronic application is the same.  Applicants should use the AMIS Training Manual for FY 2019 BEA Program Applicants as a reference when completing its electronic application in AMIS. The webinar and FY 2019 AMIS Training Manual is available at the links below.

The webinar and guidance is available at the links below.
