About Us

Across New York State CDFIs of all forms and sizes work each day to provide needed capital to low income borrowers and underserved communities.  Each of us face resource constraints that make our achievements all the more remarkable.  Mission-centered collaboration is the key to overcoming these obstacles. With that in mind, a group of CDFIs joined together in 2015 as the New York State CDFI Coalition to provide an effective and efficient delivery system for community development finance throughout the state.


To position CDFIs as the most effective strategy and policy tool to address issues of financial inclusion, housing access and economic opportunity in New York State.


We are making innovative financing possible to strengthen all New York State regions, resulting in financially vibrant and healthy communities throughout the state.
