The CDFI Capital Needs Survey is a bi-annual survey intended to catalog current and expected capital needs for CDFIs. This information will be cataloged into a bi-annual report to be shared with impact investors and the CDFI industry.


The goal of the survey is to help align expectations and drive greater investment into the CDFI industry by communicating needs and demand to potential investors and partners.


This survey is conducted by CNote, a platform focused on driving greater investment into CDFIs and underserved communities across America.


Survey results will be published on a bi-annual basis shortly after the survey closes. Our goal is to release results in mid-February and mid-July every year.
