CDFI Changes, Future Will Be Addressed At GAC Roundtable
WASHINGTON (2/19/13)--New Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) Fund programs and long-term investment prospects will be among the items addressed at an upcoming Credit Union National Association 2013 Governmental Affairs Conference roundtable.

CUNA and the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions will host the roundtable, which is scheduled to begin at 12 p.m. ET on Feb. 25. Representatives from the CDFI Fund, the U.S. Treasury Department and the federation will speak during the roundtable. The discussion will cover:

  • The long term prospects for the CDFI industry;
  • The newly released regulations for the CDFI Bond Guarantee Program; and
  • Opportunities to demonstrate community development outcomes.
Credit union CEOs will also share best practices and sustainable approaches to leveraging CDFI certification.

"The session is open to all current and potential low-income-designated credit union leaders that have an interest in exploring how to make CDFI Fund investment opportunities work for their credit union," the federation noted in a release.
