OFN and Jackson Brossy, Native CDFI Network executive director, have partnered to create the new Native CDFIs Community on the CDFI Connect online platform. Launched September 24, the new community offers a space for Native CDFIs to exchange best practices, provide resources, and share funding opportunities.
Members of the Native CDFIs Community have the opportunity to discuss Native-run business clients; webinars, conferences, and other events; funding opportunities; relevant research studies; and more. While the community is geared toward Native CDFIs and those they serve, it is open to all users of the CDFI Connect online platform.
“The Native CDFI Network is excited to join forces with OFN to provide a platform for Native CDFIs to communicate and share news, best practices, and ask questions," said Brossy. "The Native CDFI Community Connect platform will be a great resource for CDFIs!”
As we launch, we are looking for more Native CDFIs to collaborate with us and share resources and stories to ensure we create a platform that meets the needs of the community.
