CDFI Rapid Response Program Webinar: How to Prepare
What to Expect and Tips for First-Time CDFI Applicants on Thu., Feb. 4
With the recent COVID-19 relief legislation, new sources of funding are being directed to underserved communities, especially communities of color. Community development credit unions have an important role to play in deploying these funds. The CDFI Fund's Rapid Response Program (RRP) will open by February 25th, making available $1.25 billion in grants to CDFIs. Join Inclusiv on Thursday, February 4th at 2pm ET to prepare for the RRP and other CDFI applications. All first-time CDFI Fund grant applicants are urged to attend.
If you have never applied for a CDFI grant, don’t miss this critical webinar. We will provide updated information about the RRP opportunity and application process, then walk through the critical first steps that need to be completed before you can apply for a grant from the CDFI Fund. The webinar will specifically focus on the registration process for SAM.gov and Grants.gov and the CDFI Fund’s own AMIS site.
Please note: credit unions currently not CDFI Certified may be eligible for certification. Find out if you should apply for a Technical Assistance grant during the yet-to-be-announced FY 2021 funding round.
