CDFI Coalition Institute

Register Now for the 2019 Institute

Each year, the CDFI Coalition’s Institute brings together a diverse range of CDFIs from across the country to Washington for two days of networking, policy discussions, and advocacy. This year, the event will take place on March 13 and 14 at the Washington Plaza Hotel, which is located at 10 Thomas Circle in Washington, D.C.

Members of Congress, federal agency officials, and key staff will be invited to speak and participate in panels on policy and resource information related to the work of CDFIs. In addition, community and economic development industry experts will participate in discussions on topics such as fintech, Opportunity Zones, CRA modernization, financing microbusiness, affordable housing, addressing unconscious bias, and initiatives for place-based, equitable development.

The Coalition has also set aside time for attendees to visit their Members of Congress on March 13 from 2 pm to 5 pm. A reception will be hosted that evening from 5:30 to 7 pm in room 485 of the Russell Senate Office Building for attendees, Members of Congress and their staff.

An agenda outline is located below. More conference details and panel information will be posted soon–please stay tuned!
