OFN CDFI Tech Grant Program supported by Google.org

Overview

The OFN CDFI Technology Grant Program supported by Google.org provides $4 million in pass-through grants for CDFIs of all sizes.

The Program supported is a competitive awards process available to OFN members focused on small business lending and the program will have two award types:

  • Smaller grants, ranging from $75,000-$150,000, are geared to smaller or mid-sized CDFIs. We anticipate awarding roughly 10 of these smaller grants.
  • Larger grants, ranging from $250,000-$750,000, will help support larger technology innovations. We anticipate awarding roughly 5-10 of these larger grants.
