The CDFI Fund was created for the purpose of promoting economic revitalization and community development through investment in and assistance to Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs). Its vision is to economically empower America’s underserved and distressed communities through the provision of low-cost capital to certified CDFIs. The CDFI Fund was established by the Riegle Community Development Banking and Financial Institutions Act of 1994. In 2001, the CDFI Fund produced the Native American Lending Study (NALS), which analyzed lending and investment practices on Indian reservations and other lands held in trust by the United States government. Specifically, the NALS attempted to provide a baseline of information on access to capital and credit for Native Communities, identify barriers to private financing, analyze the impact on access to capital and to credit for Native people, and provide options to address these barriers. The CDFI Fund is now building upon the original study and will assess to what extent Native Americans have access to capital and credit in Native Communities in today’s economy. The CDFI Fund will produce a report that will be presented to the Department of the Treasury, United States Congress, Tribal governments, Tribal organizations, stakeholders, and the public.

The research will provide policy-makers, Tribal governments, Tribal community organizations, and economic development practitioners with detailed analysis and quantitative research that can lead to actionable recommendations for improving access to capital and credit in Native Communities. On November 6, 2000, President Clinton signed Executive Order 13175 (Consultation and Coordination With Indian Tribal Governments) in order to ‘‘establish regular and meaningful consultation and collaboration with Tribal officials in the development of Federal policies that have Tribal implications, to strengthen the United States government-to-government relationships with Indian Tribes, and to reduce the imposition of unfunded mandates upon Indian Tribes * * *’’ The Executive Order was further supported on November 5, 2009 when President Obama signed the Memorandum on Tribal Consultation, pronouncing Tribal consultations a critical ingredient of a sound and productive Federal-Tribal relationship. The CDFI Fund fully embraces the Executive Order and is taking this initial step to engage Tribes and the public in meaningful consultation. The CDFI Fund invites and encourages comments and suggestions germane to the mission, purpose, content, and implementation of the new, proposed report. The CDFI Fund is particularly interested in comments that will help determine the focus and mission of the report, as well as influence its methodology.
