From May 16-17, 82 OFN Members and Allies from 59 CDFIs across the country came to D.C. to participate in OFN’s 2017 Advocacy Day. This year was our largest Advocacy Day yet, and we could not have done it without the enthusiasm and dedication from our Advocacy Day participants.
Philadelphia, PA (May 23, 2017)—In a press statement issued today, OFN expressed disappointment at the administration’s FY 2018 budget proposal and highlighted the CDFI multiplier effect of responsible finance for hardworking Americans.
Next week will be a busy one in our nation’s capital as the White House releases the full FY18 budget proposal and administration officials testify before Congress about the budget proposal. Below is a recap of what to watch for next week.

We're exhausted but also feeling great and heartened by our experiences at yesterday's OFN Advocacy Day in DC!
