Certified CDFI

What it means to be aย CDFI

Community Development Financial Institutions – or CDFIs – are mission-driven financial institutions that are dedicated to providing financial services to meet the needs of economically disadvantaged individuals within underserved communities.

  • CDFIs invest in local communities and the residents who live there by providing critically needed financing often unavailable from mainstream financial institutions.
  • CDFIs are certified by the U.S. Department of the Treasuryโ€™s Community Development Financial Institutions Fund โ€“ known as the CDFI Fund. In order to become a certified CDFI, the financial institution must: have a primary mission of promoting community development; provide financial products and services; serve one or more defined low-income target markets; maintain accountability to the community it serves; and be a legal non-governmental entity.
  • All CDFIs share a common mission of serving low-income communities. CDFIs are commonly loan funds, credit unions, community banks, or venture capital funds.
  • Certified CDFIs are part of a national network promoting economic growth in Americaโ€™s underserved communities by financing businesses, creating jobs, and rebuilding neighborhoods.
  • As a CDFI, MBF puts the community first and values local, economic growth.
