Nearly six months after the start of fiscal year (FY) 2018, Congress finalized the FY2018 omnibus spending bill to fund the federal government through September 30, 2018.
Each new year brings new challenges and opportunities for CDFIs, and 2018 is no different. We expect another challenging year for federal policies and programs affecting CDFIs.
We’re proud to report that over the course of the year #CDFIsInvest, the OFN-led national social media campaign, exceeded 10 million impressions, to more than 11 million impressions in December for OFN and the CDFI industry on social media!

Advocate on behalf of our industry—join OFN Conference attendees on September 26 for CDFIsInvest on the Hill! As Congress works on the FY18 budget, they need to hear from constituents like you who know first-hand about CDFI's impact and why programs like the CDFI Fund should be preserved.
