Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) is the national association of community development financial institutions (CDFIs). We help money flow to people and places where traditional finance doesn’t reach by maximizing the effectiveness of OFN member and non-member CDFIs through direct financing, learning opportunities, industry events, and advocacy.
We represent and serve a diverse membership of more than 250 CDFIs of various asset sizes and lending types working on the ground in all 50 states.
Through 2016, OFN's network originated $54 billion in communities across all 50 states, including urban, rural, and Native areas. We are proud of our impact so far, and seek to do even more in terms of jobs, small businesses, affordable housing, and community services.
Currently, OFN manages more than $600 million in capital and offers a range of products and services to help CDFIs lend and invest in markets underserved by mainstream banks. <link to finance>
