As part of the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s commitment to revitalizing economic and community development across the country, Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) Director Donna J. Gambrell, Treasury Deputy Assistant Secretary Don Graves and U.S. Representative Gwen Moore announced the awardees of the CDFI Program Awards. Community Vision is proud to announce we were awarded $1,453,806.00 through the CDFI Program Awards!

Speaking to a group of CDFIs that work in Wisconsin, Director Gambrell highlighted how the awards will benefit the country. “I am pleased to announce the 2012 awards for the CDFI Program and the NACA Program, which will increase the capacity of CDFIs serving low-income and Native communities across the country,” said Director Gambrell. “This year’s awardees will continue to provide vital financial services in low-income areas that are typically overlooked by traditional lenders, bettering the lives of Americans nationwide.”

Through the CDFI Program’s Financial Assistance and Technical Assistance awards, the CDFI Fund invests in and builds the capacity of for-profit and non-profit community based lending organizations known as Community Development Financial Institutions, or CDFIs. These organizations, certified as CDFIs by the U.S. Treasury Department, serve rural and urban low-income people and communities across the nation that lack adequate access to affordable financial products and services.

We congratulate all the organizations that received a CDFI Program Award!
