Council of Development Finance Agencies

Columbus, Ohio



The Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA) is a national association dedicated to the advancement of development finance concerns and interests. This grant will provide project support to CDFA as it provides technical assistance to states and Development Finance Agencies (DFAs) in response to the Investing in Opportunity Act (IIOA), a new community development financing program enacted as part of the Jobs and Tax Act of 2018. CDFA will work alongside partners to advise states and their economic development agencies about program deadlines and to recommend strategies for ensuring the IIOA benefits projects that will provide lasting wealth and opportunity to low-income communities.
