The Federal Reserve COVID-19 CDFI Survey is now open. Join your colleagues in completing the survey to better inform the Fed, the CDFI Fund, and other policymakers, researchers, and practitioners about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on CDFIs. 

Take the survey today! The survey closes at 12 PM ET on Friday, July 31. 

The Federal Reserve and the CDFI Fund intend to use the survey data to inform research and future policymaking. For example, data may be used to inform decisions on the design of the Fed’s COVID-19 facilities. The survey data will also provide important benchmark information on how CDFIs are faring in the COVID-19 crisis and how they are serving low-income and minority populations. 

The twenty-minute survey is open to all CDFIs, regardless of certification status. Please be aware that the survey may be distributed to multiple individuals at your organization, but only one response is necessary per organization. 

The survey is built off existing reporting requirements to maximize your time. More information about the COVID-19 CDFI Survey and the Fed’s CDFI survey work is available here

The CDFI Survey is a collaborative effort of the Fed, the CDFI Fund, Opportunity Finance Network, the CDFI Coalition, First Nations Oweesta Corporation, Inclusiv, NeighborWorks America, the New York State CDFI Coalition, and the Asociación de Ejecutivos de Cooperativas de Ahorro y Crédito de Puerto Rico.
