CDFI Fund: Save the Date for Upcoming FY 2018 Capital Magnet Fund Information Sessions

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) is tentatively planning to publish the Notice of Funds Availability (NOFA) and application for the FY 2018 Capital Magnet Fund round in the Summer of 2018. Approximately $140 million is expected to be available for awards through the FY 2018 round.

The Capital Magnet Fund provides awards to finance affordable housing activities, as well as related economic development activities and community service facilities, nationwide. The CDFI Fund will provide further information about the NOFA, application, and how to apply in the coming months.

In the meantime, to help CDFIs and non-profit organizations who may be interested in applying prepare for the upcoming award round, the CDFI Fund will be holding two virtual information sessions in May and June, 2018. At each session, CDFI Fund staff will provide an introductory overview of the Capital Magnet Fund program and discuss how organizations can start preparing to apply for the 2018 round. Recent changes to mandatory government application systems, such as and, mean that both new and repeat applicants may benefit from attending the sessions.
