CDFI Fund: CDE Certification Application Process Improved

Continuing the modernization of its processes and systems, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) has improved the Community Development Entity (CDE) Certification Application in its Awards Management Information System (AMIS). The updated application is available now.

The new user-friendly format of the application in AMIS will provide for ease of completion and submission. Applicants should note that CDE certification criteria and questions are unmodified from the previous application form.

The CDFI Fund has prepared guidance to help applicants become familiar with the application and guide them through the technical aspects of completion and submission in AMIS. Updated application guidance and a pre-recorded webinar are available on the CDE Certification webpage under the ‘How to Apply’ section by clicking on Step 1: Apply.

Any questions regarding CDE Certification should be directed to the Certification and Compliance Help Desk at or at (202) 653-0423.

Questions related to the AMIS system can be directed to the Information Technology Support Help Desk through: an AMIS service request; email at; or phone at (202) 653-0422.
