Virtual video event

Native Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) are a vital source of credit and financial services in Indian Country. The Center for Indian Country Development (CICD) is shedding light on the unique characteristics and contributions of Native CDFIs, and best practices that strengthen their work and impact in Native communities.

You are invited to join the July 11 for a conversation about the latest research on the unique lending practices of Native CDFIs. This is the second event in a new webinar series from CICD: Cultivating Native Economies in the 21st Century. The series provides Tribal leaders, policymakers, and practitioners with information they can use to strengthen and expand Indian Country economic prosperity.

The July 11 webinar will feature recent research on Native CDFIs, including studies of Native CDFIs’ success with character-based lending practices and use of client counseling as a way to support clients and mitigate loan risk. The webinar will also offer insights from recently completed interviews with Native CDFI leaders across Indian Country who shared their perspectives on community needs, tailoring products and services to meet those needs, and where there are opportunities for and barriers to funding.

The Native CDFI Network and Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) are cohosting this webinar as part of an OFN regional meeting taking place at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.
