RE: Receipt of RRP Funds

To All Participants, It finally started our Agreement was counter-signed 7/28/2021 at 11:05 pm of all times. I think everyone with signed agreements will have the same outcome either today or within a few days. We signed our agreement on 6/29 and the counter-signed 7/28 one month better late then never. Good luck everyone.

Jeanne, We received and signed our agreement on 6/29/2021 but as of 7/28/2021 the agreement is still not countersigned. Usually is takes 2-4 days to get a counter signature then another 2-4 days after the counter signature to get the CDFI funds​. About 10 days ago I decided to email the CDFI to ask this question and was told that they are working diligently but because of the number of winners they are swamped. No target date for the counter-signature has been given but I am guessing they have to [More]

Let's Make a Deal? CDFIs and Local Government

Fri, 2021-07-23 16:11
From : Communities>>Open Forum
Dear Colleagues:  As COVID-recovery dollars have flowed out to local governments, dozens (hundreds?) have turned to CDFIs to help get the money out where it is needed the most. That's great! What's not so great is that is many municipalities don't really understand how CDFIs operate, with the result that the 'deal' offered is not in their best interests of the lender. Familiar story? Read on in "New Equity Capital" - our new blog. Happy Friday! ------------------------------ Jason Friedman President [More]
