Expanding CDFI Coverage in Underserved Areas


Understanding the Benefits of CDFI Status for Newly-Certified and Prospective CDFIs

When: July 22-23, 2015
Where: Denver Branch of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank, Denver, CO

This workshop is part of the CDFI Fund’s “Expanding CDFI Coverage in Underserved Areas” Capacity Building Initiative Training Series.

This workshop, provided by OFN in partnership with the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions (NFCDCU), Community Development Bankers Association (CDBA), and Community Development Venture Capital Alliance (CDVCA), is geared toward newly-certified CDFIs or existing community-based banks, credit unions, loan funds, and venture capital funds that want a deeper understanding of the benefits and requirements of CDFI certification for their organization. During the workshop, participants will learn about what it means to be a certified CDFI and what some of the strategic choices are regarding pursuing CDFI certification. Participants will also learn how to measure impact, tell their CDFI’s story to funders and partners, and explore collaboration and partnership models.

All of the “Expanding CDFI Coverage in Underserved Areas” workshops are free of charge to participants; however, workshop attendees are responsible for their own travel, food, and incidental costs.
