Community Development Capital Initiative

Program Purpose and Overview

Many communities that are underserved by traditional banks and financial services providers found it harder to obtain credit as the economy began its downturn. Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) exist to provide financing to these communities. 
In particular, CDFIs focus on providing financial services to low‐ and moderate‐income, minority, and other underserved communities.
Treasury created the Community Development Capital Initiative (CDCI) on February 3, 2010 to help viable certified CDFIs and the communities they serve cope with effects of the financial crisis.
