Calling all CDFI-certified credit unions, last call to complete the 2023 Annual Federal Reserve CDFI Survey

Please complete by June 3, 2023!

The Federal Reserve’s Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Survey aims to understand current challenges and opportunities for CDFIs nationwide. The information we collect helps provide policymakers, researchers, practitioners, funders, investors, and other community development stakeholders with timely information about the CDFI industry. CDFIs can also use the results to compare their organization to a larger national sample and to learn about other CDFIs’ innovative products and practices. This year’s survey asks CDFIs about demand for their products, challenges in meeting demand, new products and practices they have developed, and their approaches to measuring outputs and outcomes.

Participation in this survey is voluntary. The survey is open to all types of CDFIs, including banks, credit unions, loan funds and venture capital funds. Identified responses are confidential, and only aggregated or otherwise de-identified results will be reported publicly. The Richmond Fed reserves the right to share de-identified, individual response data with researchers and trusted survey partners, including but not limited to other Federal Reserve Banks and the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, the CDFI Fund and Opportunity Finance Network. By completing any portion of the survey, you agree to these data provisions. We place a high priority on protecting your information. We will never publish or share any contact information, organization information, or identified individual response data without your consent. At the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to provide consent to have your contact information added to a national directory of CDFIs and to have your identified, individual response data shared with trusted survey partners.
The survey is best completed by an executive decision-maker within the organization (e.g., CEO, COO or board member). The survey will take about 20 minutes to complete. You may exit the survey at any time, and your answers will be saved to complete later.
This survey will close June 2, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Please direct any questions to Surekha Carpenter at
