CDFI 2023: What Comes Next for CDFI Credit Unions



This is a confusing time for CDFI credit unions, and for those who are interested in Community Development Financial Institution status—pause periods, new certification applications, changed grant deadlines—how do you keep up?


On January 11, CU Strategic Planning hosted a webinar with Callahan and Associates where we dug in to the current landscape for credit unions and the CDFI Fund. Our Chief Experience Office Mike Beall led the presentation, joined by President/CEO Stacy Augustine, VP of Grant Compliance Christine Duncan and Senior Partner of Total Spectrum John McKechnie to discuss:

  • Existing Grants

  • The New Certification Coming 2023

  • Future Awards

  • Our predicted timeline for the new CDFI Certification

  • Best practices to stay in compliance

  • Ideas to help avoid a CDFI Cure letter, and what to do if you get one in 2023

  • Be in it to win it! Ways to win 2023 CDFI FA and TA Grants

If you missed the live webinar, you can view the recording on demand and download the slides. Be sure to check out this comprehensive webinar to learn about what's in store this year for CDFIs.
