Black-Led Community Finance Organizations

 

In partnership with the African American Alliance of CDFI CEOs, CNote is working to catalog and publicly share a list of Black-led Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs). If you’d like to get deeper context into the issue, you can read this article we recently co-authored.

The list below can be filtered by keyword, state, and other criteria. When possible, we’ve tried to share website information so those interested can get in touch with leadership at these institutions.

The goal of this initiative is to drive greater funding to Black-led institutions and address the persistent funding gap many of these Black-led organizations have and currently face.*
