The Federal Reserve 2021 CDFI Survey is now open. Join your colleagues in completing the survey to better inform the Fed, the CDFI Fund, and other policymakers, researchers, and practitioners about the collective work of CDFIs.
As with past survey data, the Federal Reserve and the CDFI Fund intend to use the survey data to inform research and future policymaking. Data from last year’s survey informed the design of CDFI Fund and Federal Reserve programs, including the CDFI Rapid Response Program, as well as outreach and education efforts.
The 60-minute survey — which the Fed has significantly shortened this year — is open to all CDFIs, regardless of certification status. Please be aware that the survey may be distributed to multiple individuals at your organization, but only one response is necessary per organization. The survey closes at 11:59 pm ET on Friday, May 14.
The CDFI Survey is a collaborative effort of the Fed, the CDFI Fund, Opportunity Finance Network, the CDFI Coalition, Inclusiv, the Community Development Bankers Association, the Native CDFI Network, First Nations Oweesta Corporation, NeighborWorks America, the New York State CDFI Coalition, and the Asociación de Ejecutivos de Cooperativas de Ahorro y Crédito de Puerto Rico.
