Urge Congress to Support $221 Million for CDFI Fund!

First Nations Development Institute supports the Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) and its campaign to keep funding for Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), which are vital to rural communities’ economic security, and encourages you to contact your Member of Congress to support the continued funding of CDFIs.

What follows is OFN’s message:

Soon, Members of Congress will begin the annual appropriations process in earnest by submitting their spending request letters to the Appropriations Committees in the House and Senate. OFN is urging CDFI advocates and supporters to contact their Members of Congress to ask them to include $221 million for the CDFI Fund in their appropriations request letters!

Please take a few minutes to contact your Senators and Representatives and urge them to submit an appropriations request of $221 million for the CDFI Fund in FY 2013.
