The mission of the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) is to increase economic opportunity and promote community development investments for underserved populations in distressed communities in the United States. Its long-term vision is to economically empower America's underserved and distressed communities. The purpose of the Community Development Financial Institutions Program (CDFI Program) is to promote economic revitalization and community development through investment in and assistance to Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs). Under the CDFI Program, the CDFI Fund provides financial assistance in the form of grants, loans, equity investments and deposits to CDFIs selected through a merit-based application process. The CDFI Fund provides financial assistance to CDFIs to enhance their ability to make loans and investments, and to provide related services for the benefit of designated investment areas, targeted populations, or both. In addition, through the CDFI Program, the CDFI Fund provides technical assistance grants to CDFIs and entities that propose to become CDFIs, for the purpose of increasing their capacity to serve their target markets. The CDFI Fund is amending its regulations regarding the financial reporting requirements for non-profit organizations. The regulatory change requires CDFI Program awardees that are non-profit organizations to provide audited financial statements within 180 days after the end of the awardee's fiscal year end. This regulatory action conforms to the financial reporting requirements for non-profit awardees to the statutory provisions governing the CDFI Program.
