Streamlined CDFI Application: Your Questions Answered

Logo for the Community Development Financial Institutions fund

Has your credit union prepared to submit its Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) streamlined certification application? Before the window opens on Sept. 12, there’s a FREE Sept. 10 webinar to prepare you for the process — hosted by the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues!

Low Income Credit Unions (LICUs) and other credit unions can use this webinar as an opportunity to learn more about the process of pursuing the CDFI certification. The CDFI certification positions YOUR credit union to be eligible for grant awards from the U.S. Treasury Department’s CDFI Fund.

On Sept. 10, the Leagues are proud to host John Berry Jr., consumer access analyst for the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) Credit Union Resource and Education Office (CURE). In support of the upcoming CDFI Streamlined Application Qualification Process window, he will provide an overview of the Streamlined CDFI Certification Qualification Process. Attendees can ask any questions about the process.

‘Why CDFI?’ — Mission and Values
Certified CDFIs are eligible to apply for awards through a variety of programs offered by the CDFI Fund. These awards enable CDFIs to finance a wide range of activities — including mortgage lending for first-time homebuyers, flexible underwriting for community facilities, and commercial loans for businesses in low-income areas.

Through varying strategies, each CDFI contributes to the cultivation of a healthy and stable local economy. For more information, please see the CDFI Certification Fact Sheet.
