I have a local colleague in Milwaukee who has a long history of working in community organizing/development but is new to the CDFI world who would like to attend the OFN conference in DC. Her organization is already sending someone so she doesn't have access to funds from her workplace. She will be in DC on a personal trip so only needs a registration.

Hi, everyone again!  I  did not attend the recently held New England User Group meeting, since I was attending the New England Mortgage Bankers Conference, at the same time that this was occurring.  However, I did just send  another  email to Donna Fabiani, inquiring about what, if anything, was happening with my original request on 5/24/2019, in regards to an online New England User Group.  I will update you, as soon as I get a response from either Donna or Seth Julyan, who I did 'cc this time.  [More]

RE: In the Halls of Congress

Wed, 2019-09-18 11:10
From : Communities>>Open Forum
Hi Jamie, Your sources are correct! Yesterday the Senate FSGG subcommittee did approve $251 million for the CDFI Fund in FY 2020. The full text of the bill has not yet been posted but we expect it will be soon. Since the House and Senate have yet to come to an agreement on FY 2020 spending and the end of the FY 2019 is less than 2 weeks away, there will need to be a short term containing resolution to fund the government through November 21 to allow Congress time to negotiate FY 2020 funding levels.

If anyone likes the insider scoop: Our (wo)man on the hill reports, "Hill staff say that the Senate FSGG bill appropriated $251 million." Interested in the community's thoughts on the notion that we might need them to split the difference between House and Senate if we can't get the full $300 million. Does anyone else have representation or ears on capital hill reporting the same? ------------------------------ Jamie (Chase) Strayer Founder CU Strategic Planning jamie@creditunionstrategicplanning.com [More]

Hi Caprice, I'm just reading this post now and was wondering what you found in your research for a new system and  if you ever got around putting together that excel sheet comparing systems. We are currently in the search of a system that can talk to Quickbooks and ideally can allow us to do servicing and loan origination in one place.  Any information you can share would be appreciated!  Thank you,  Lissette ------------------------------ Lissette Paukert Program Administrator MCCI Lawrence MA (978) [More]
