CDFI Bank Roundtable - Chicago

On the morning of Friday, August 24th, CDBA and The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago were proud to host the members of Chicago's CDFI banker community for a special roundtable event with guest speakers and collaborative discussion. The program included a presentation on Opportunity Zones by The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning and also a talk on sources of capital for CDFI banks by the Federal Reserve Bank's CDPS division. After this, CDBA took center stage to lead a vibrant discussion on a variety of relevant topics such as federal policy initiatives, the regulatory landscape of Chicago-area CDFIs, meeting the credit and financial needs of Chicago's low-income residents, and much else. CDBA is happy to have played a role in this amazing initiative and hopes it is the start of more collaboration to come with CDFI bankers in Chicago.
