COVID-19 CDFI Survey

The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic downturn have made the work of CDFIs more important than ever. As a result, there is an urgent need for comprehensive, up-to-date data on CDFIs. The Federal Reserve COVID-19 CDFI Survey helps fill that information gap.

Are you a CDFI leader? Review the survey questions and take the survey now.

The Fed and the CDFI Fund intend to use the survey data to inform research and future policymaking. For example, data may be used to inform decisions on the design of the Fed’s COVID-19 facilities.

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. CDFI data collection during the Great Recession was limited, and that was a missed opportunity. We do not want to make that mistake again.

Submit a response for your CDFI today. The survey is open from July 20-August 14, and will take about 30 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, the CDFI Coalition, the Native CDFI Network, First Nations Oweesta Corporation, Inclusiv, NeighborWorks America, the New York State CDFI Coalition and the Asociación de Ejecutivos de Cooperativas de Ahorro y Crédito de Puerto Rico.
