Impact Performance

Since 1996, when the CDFI Fund made its first awards, CDFIs have grown to deploy total assets of approximately $136 billion (according to the CDFI Fund at the end of the third quarter 2017).

OFN tracks the impact and performance of our member CDFIs annually. With more than $53 million in cumulative financing since inception through 2016, OFN member CDFIs have helped to:

  • create or maintain more than 1.2 million jobs
  • start or expand over 256,000 businesses and microenterprises
  • support the development or rehabilitation of over 1.9 million housing units and 10,429 community facility projects 

In 2016, OFN’s members had a net charge-off ratio of 0.35%, outperforming FDIC-insured institutions whose ratio in that same time period was 0.47%.
