Applications must meet all eligibility and other requirements and deadlines, as applicable, set forth in this NOFA. Applications received after 5 p.m. ET on May 5, 2010 will be rejected. Executive Summary: Subject to funding availability, this NOFA is issued in connection with the FY 2010 funding round of the BEA Program. The BEA Program is administered by the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund. The BEA Program encourages Insured Depository Institutions to increase their levels of loans, investments, services, and technical assistance within Distressed Communities, and financial assistance to CDFIs through grants, stock purchases, loans, deposits, and other forms of financial and technical assistance, during a specified period. I. Funding Opportunity Description A. Baseline Period and Assessment Period dates: A BEA Program award is based on an Applicant’s increases in Qualified Activities from the Baseline Period to the Assessment Period. For the FY 2010 funding round, the Baseline Period is calendar year 2008 (January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008), and the Assessment Period is calendar year 2009 (January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009). B. Program regulations: The regulations governing the BEA Program can be found at 12 CFR part 1806 (the Interim Rule) and provide guidance on evaluation criteria and other requirements of the BEA Program. The CDFI Fund encourages Applicants to review the Interim Rule. Detailed application content requirements are found in the application related to this NOFA. Each capitalized term in this NOFA is more fully defined either in the Interim Rule or the application. C. Qualified Activities: Qualified Activities are defined in the Interim Rule to include CDFI Related Activities, Distressed Community Financing Activities, and Service Activities (12 CFR 1806.103(nn)). CDFI Related Activities include Equity Investments, Equity-Like Loans, and CDFI Support Activities (12 CFR 1806.103(r)).

Subject to the requirements outlined in Section VII. B.1. of this NOFA, in the case of Commercial Real Estate Loans and CDFI Related Activities, the total principal amount of the transaction must be $10 million or less to be considered a Qualified Activity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the CDFI Fund, in its sole discretion, may consider transactions with a total principal value of over $10 million, subject to review. Qualified Activities funded with prior funding round Award dollars shall not constitute a Qualified Activity for the purposes of calculating or receiving an Award. D. Designation of Distressed Community: Each CDFI Partner that is the recipient of CDFI Support Activities from an Applicant must designate a Distressed Community. CDFI Partners that receive Equity Investments are not required to designate Distressed Communities. Applicants applying for a BEA Program award for carrying out Distressed Community Financing Activities or Service Activities must verify that addresses of both Baseline and Assessment Period activities are in Distressed Communities when completing their application. Please note that a Distressed Community as defined by the BEA Program is not necessarily the same as an Investment Area as defined by the CDFI Program or a Low-Income Community as defined by the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Program. 1. Definition of Distressed Community: A Distressed Community must meet certain minimum geographic area and distress requirements, which are defined in the Interim Rule at 12 CFR 1806.103(t) and more fully described in 12 CFR 1806.200. 2. Designation of Distressed Community: A CDFI Partner (as appropriate) shall designate an area as a Distressed Community by: (a) Selecting Geographic Units which individually meet the minimum area eligibility requirements; or (b) selecting two or more Geographic Units which, in the aggregate, meet the minimum area eligibility requirements set forth in paragraph (1) of this section provided that no Geographic Unit selected by the Applicant within the area has a poverty rate of less than 20 percent.
