CDFI Fund to hold conference call for CMF applicants today
WASHINGTON (3/31/10)--The U.S. Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund this week announced that it will hold a pair of conference calls for potential applicants to its Capital Magnet Fund (CMF). During the calls, which will take place today at 3 p.m. ET and 3 p.m. ET on Friday, potential applicants will be able to ask questions of CDFI Fund staff about the current round of the Capital Magnet Fund. The CMF is a competitive grant program for CDFIs and other nonprofits to attract private capital for development, preservation, rehabilitation, and purchase of affordable housing for low-income families. It is also meant to stir economic development activities or community service, which in conjunction with affordable housing activities may implement a concerted strategy to stabilize or revitalize a low-income area or underserved rural area. The CDFI Fund is currently searching for qualified application reviewers and recently extended the application deadline for FY 2010 examiners until March 31.
