Building Native CDFIs' Sustainability and Impact II (BNCSI II) reflects the continuation of the CDFI Fund's ongoing work to address the lack of access to credit and capital in Native communities. For more than ten years, the CDFI Fund has used targeted training and technical assistance to build the capacity of the Native CDFI industry. To meet the needs of today's Native CDFIs, the CDFI Fund partnered with ICF Incorporated, LLC and First Nations Oweesta Corporation to deliver a comprehensive technical assistance training platform for the Native CDFI industry. BNCSI II consisted of twelve trainings, including four in-person workshops and eight webinars; individualized technical assistance; site visits; and learning cadres. Below you will find resources developed and utilized under the BNCSI II initiative.
