CDFI Futures is a series exploring the community development finance industry through the lenses of equity, public policy and inclusive community development. There are more than a thousand organizations certified as CDFIs that are providing credit and financial services to disinvested and underserved neighborhoods and populations in every state, plus Puerto Rico and Guam. CDFIs and inclusive community development intersect with work happening across a range of topics, including affordable housing, education, social services, health, transportation, infrastructure, DEI, and more. The series is generously supported by Partners for the Common Good. Sign up for PCG’s CapNexus newsletter at capnexus.org.
