We Believe in
Opportunity. For All.
CDFIs—community development financial institutions—align capital with justice. We invest in opportunities and transform lives and places for disinvested people. We make our economy—and our nation—stronger, one opportunity at a time.
How do CDFIs Create Opportunity?
By financing community businesses—small businesses, microenterprises, nonprofit organizations, commercial real estate, and affordable housing—CDFIs spark job growth and retention in hard-to serve markets across the nation.
