Please join the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Federal Reserve Board of Governors, and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency for “Bridging the Gap: Assessing the Evolving Needs of Mission-Driven Banks,” a virtual listening session series for Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs) and Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) Banks. We greatly value your ongoing commitment to supporting small businesses, consumers, and the communities you serve during this unprecedented time. During the listening sessions, we look forward to hearing your insights on the current state of the economic recovery, what uncertainties remain, and how the regulators can better support MDIs and CDFI banks.

There will be four sessions, all with the same agenda and set of discussion questions. Note that the third session will be more targeted to CDFI banks, but anyone can join any session. Please register for the session that best fits your schedule:

Tuesday, September 13, 2022, from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. ET
Wednesday, September 21, 2022, from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET
Thursday, October 6, 2022, from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. ET (CDFI Session)
Monday, October 17, 2022, from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. ET


This is an invitation-only event that is open to MDI and CDFI bank presidents and chief executive officers, other members of senior leadership, and your board of directors. Please feel free to join more than one session if your schedule permits. On-camera participation is encouraged.

Registration inquiries and general questions should be forwarded to

We look forward to seeing you at one of these important sessions as our primary goals are to assess your evolving needs and obtain ideas to enhance the resources the agencies provide through our MDI and CDFI Programs.
