Community Affairs Webinar Series

Model Approaches to Community Bank/Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) Partnerships

On July 31, 2014, the FDIC hosted a national webinar to inform community banks of strategies to meet community credit needs in low- and moderate-income communities and receive Community Reinvestment consideration through collaboration with CDFIs.  The webinar included an overview of FDIC’s Strategies for Community Banks to Develop Partnerships with CDFIs, presentations on model bank/CDFI partnerships, and an overview of U.S. Department of the Treasury programs that can potentially support bank/CDFI partnerships.
