Twenty-three out of the 32 organizations are CDFIs. The 20 OFN Members selected will receive $57 million in funding for the development of affordable housing and community facilities in low-income communities. Since the program requires recipients to leverage $10 of housing and economic development investments for every $1 dollar of federal funds, OFN Members will support $570 million of investments in low-income communities.
