20 Years of CDFI Banks and Credit Unions, 1996-2015: An Analysis of Trends and Growth
Issue Date: 2017-03-01

This analysis of CDFI banks and credit unions is a companion piece to OFN’s 2015 longitudinal analysis of CDFI loan funds, “20 Years of Opportunity Finance, 1994-2013: An Analysis of Trends and Growth.” Using several data sources on regulated financial institutions, this study shows that CDFI banks and credit unions grew dramatically and demonstrated strong performance throughout the 20-year period, even during the Great Recession. Findings also show that CDFI banks and credit unions offer financial services benefitting low/moderate-income communities at substantially higher rates than conventional banks and credit unions.
