Save the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFIF)

The Federal Government is operating under a continuing resolution that expires on September 30. The President has submitted to Congress his FY 18 budget. In his outline, the president proposes to eliminate federal funding level for the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI) Fund.

CDFIs finance community development initiatives, including small businesses, community facilities and low-income housing. Eliminating funding would make it more difficult for credit unions to provide this much-needed community assistance to consumers who are underserved, have a modest income, or are living in distressed communities.

As part of this service to members, some credit unions participate in the Department of the Treasury's Community Development Financial (CDFI). The CDFI Fund provides financial assistance and technical assistance to CDFIs through its program and may offer grants, secondary capital, nonmember deposit, or loans. Financial assistance awards must be matched from non-federal sources.

Tell Congress to support the Community Development Financial Institution Fund.
