The Ultimate
CDFI Funding Guidefor 2024

By LLG Partners

Community Development Financial Institutions, commonly known as CDFIs, are financial support organizations that are willing to fund small businesses regardless of bad credit, limited experience, or time in business. CDFIs can take various forms, including credit unions, banks, loan funds, and venture capital funds. They are certified by the U.S. Department of the Treasury's CDFI Fund, which provides financial and technical assistance to support their operations.


Due to their structure and core values, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) can offer more flexible underwriting criteria compared to traditional financial institutions. This gives them the ability to serve individuals and businesses who may not qualify for loans or other financial services from mainstream banks. CDFIs play a vital role in promoting economic development and financial inclusion in underserved communities, helping to create immense opportunities for individuals and businesses to build wealth and enhance their quality of life.

Within this e-book, you will discover over 1,000 CDFIs and affiliated institutions across the US that can fund your business venture or expansion. They are organized by state for your convenience.
