The Power of Community Development Financial Institutions

Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs) often serve as a bridge between low-income communities, economic resources, and access to capital. This is all the more evident and important following the events of 2020 with corporations, philanthropists, and government institutions further recognizing the power of these community lenders to accelerate a much-needed economic recovery.

During this virtual event, leaders identified ways to deploy more capital, build innovative products and services, and educate investors and borrowers alike. These actions will support the CDFI industry so that it can continue to make meaningful strides to close America’s longest-standing wealth and opportunity gaps while powering an inclusive economic recovery.
