About the Federation
The Federation was instrumental in establishing the CDFI Fund in 1994, is a permanent member of the national CDFI Coalition and is the CDFI and community finance authority for the credit union industry. The Federation’s member CDCUs represent 4 million consumers in low-income communities across the US, and we represent the majority of all CDFI-certified credit unions. The CDFI Fund is a unique source of capital for community development credit unions. CDFI grants can fuel growth in membership, deposits and loans in communities that are eager to join the cooperative finance movement. Today, CDFI Certification is an essential credential for credit unions that seek a larger role in the development of their communities. Inaddition to representing CDCUs’ interest through advocacy with the CDFI Fund, the Federation is also an extensive resource for credit unions interested in learning more about CDFI-certification and offers expert certification and grant writing consulting services through its CU Breakthrough consulting group.
