Community Development Financial Institutions Fund

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) helps promote access to capital and local economic growth in urban and rural low-income communities across the nation through monetary awards and the allocation of tax credits. Financial institutions certified by the CDFI Fund are eligible to apply for monetary support and training to build organization capacity. The CDFI Fund programs are competitive, and each of its programs provides CDFIs with the flexibility to determine the best use of limited federal resources in their community that can include affordable mortgage lending.
