Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs)

CDFIs play a central role in ongoing work towards an equitable economic recovery as they help consumers, small businesses and communities access funding. There continues to be an urgent need for comprehensive, up-to-date data on CDFIs. The Federal Reserve 2021 CDFI Survey is part of a continued effort to provide this information.

Are you a CDFI leader? Take the survey now.

Preview the survey.

The Fed and the CDFI Fund intend to use the survey data to inform research and future policymaking. The survey data will also provide important benchmark information on how CDFIs are faring in the COVID-19 crisis and how they are serving low-income and minority populations.

Learn more about the survey effort and submit a response for your CDFI today. The survey is open from March 22–May 14, and will take about 60 minutes to complete. We encourage participation from all CDFIs, regardless of certification status. Please be aware that only one response is necessary per organization.

This effort is a partnership of the Fed, the CDFI Fund, Opportunity Finance Network, CDFI Coalition, Inclusiv, Community Development Bankers Association, Native CDFI Network, First Nations Oweesta Corporation, NeighborWorks America, New York State CDFI Coalition and Asociación de Ejecutivos de Cooperativas de Ahorro y Crédito de Puerto Rico.
