Financing Community Development in Uncertain Times

This research focuses on the field of Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) in the US. These organizations provide financing for housing and business development in poor and distressed communities. We are examining how these organizations collaborate with mainstream financial institutions and how CDFI leaders are coping with the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.
