Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI)
The CDFI Bond Guarantee Program provides Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) access to a significant source of capital. By providing guarantees of bonds issued by certain qualified bond issuers, the CDFI Bond Guarantee Program injects new and substantial capital into our nation’s most distressed communities. CDFIs can gain from the potential scale of the CDFI Bond Guarantee Program, which offers long-term credit at below-market interest rates. Administered by the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund), an office within the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the program is a groundbreaking effort to accelerate community economic revitalization.
