Today is the start of the first Congressional recess of 2017. Members of Congress will be in their districts from February 20 to February 26 and will use this time as an opportunity to meet with constituents, host town hall meetings, and tour site visits within the district.
From February 28 to March 1, the CDFI Coalition will hold its 2017 CDFI Institute in Washington, D.C.
In our role as the nation’s CDFI leadership network, OFN raises awareness for the work of CDFIs across the country, advocates for CDFI funding and program access, as well as shines a bright light on the impact CDFIs have in all of our local communities.
In July 2016, OFN announced that for the first time in its 30-year history, the OFN Board of Directors had approved proxy voting at OFN’s Annual Membership Meeting.
