This regulatory change creates a means for the CDFI Fund, in its discretion, to permit a CDFI's Affiliate, which applies for CDFI certification, to rely on the Controlling CDFI's activity or track record in order to meet the financing entity requirement, solely for the purpose of the Affiliate participating as an Eligible CDFI under the CDFI Bond Guarantee Program.
