CDFI Fund: Change in Deadline for Annual Certification and Data Collection and Compliance Reports

The new deadline to submit these reports is April 30, 2021.

All Certified CDFIs are required to submit ACRs on an annual basis. CDFIs must submit their ACRs, in the Awards Management Information System (AMIS), within 90 days of the end of their organization’s fiscal year. Those organizations newly certified during fiscal year 2021 are not required to submit the ACR until the 2022 reporting cycle.

The due dates to submit annual compliance report(s) vary by fiscal year end date and type of award, as well as by the specific terms within each organization’s individual Assistance and/or Allocation Agreement.

The due dates(s) for your organization’s required report(s) can be found in the Assistance and/or Allocation Agreement(s) for your award(s) and in the Report Schedule in AMIS. Please review your Assistance and/or Allocation Agreement(s) to verify if you are required to report at this time and for additional information about the annual compliance report requirements.
