The Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) released today 13 years of data provided by Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) through its data collection system, the Community Investment Impact System (CIIS). The data collected covers fiscal years (FY) 2003 through 2015.
The release contains Institution Level Report (ILR) data on 823 CDFIs that have reported to CIIS. These CDFIs have provided information on their operations, financial status, and impact in their communities. A previous data release in 2016 consisted of ILR data on 777 CDFIs that had reported to CIIS from FY 2003 through 2014.
The CDFI Fund also released Transaction Level Report (TLR) data detailing how CDFIs provide loans and investments in low-income communities. The data file includes the features and location of over 450,000 individual loans and investments totaling more than $34 billion made by 433 CDFIs. A previous data release in 2016 consisted of TLR data on 401 CDFIs that had reported to CIIS from FY 2003 through 2014.
As part of compliance requirements, award recipients under the Community Development Financial Institutions Program (CDFI Program) are required to submit information to CIIS within six months after the close of their fiscal year. This includes both the ILR and TLR. The ILR release includes a total of 203 variables and 3,759 observations describing CDFIs’ profiles such as the demographic and geographic areas that a CDFI served, staffing levels, financial status, and services and training provided.
The TLR release includes a total of 50 variables and 464,931 observations detailing CDFIs’ financing activities in an area, including loan or investment structure and location. All ILR and TLR data released to the public are masked to protect the identity of individual CDFIs.
