Does the CDFI Fund Help Low-Income Borrowers?

Kristle Cortes

Economic Commentary, 2014, issue Jul

Abstract: The Treasury Department's CDFI Fund awards grants to community development financial institutions (CDFIs) that operate in low-income areas. Awards are intended to strengthen the institutions and increase the amount they lend to borrowers in those areas. This analysis of proprietary data from the US Treasury shows that when CDFIs receive grant money, they put it to use as additional loans in impoverished and economically weak areas.
