CDFI Fund Update: New Capacity Building Initiative Resource Bank Available
WASHINGTON, D.C. – August 22, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — The Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) is committed to making its Capacity Building Initiative a comprehensive source of trainings and reference materials for Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs). Building upon that commitment, the CDFI Fund has added a new Capacity Building Initiative Resource Bank to its website. The Foreclosure Solutions Resource Bank will be an essential tool for CDFIs navigating the intricacies of foreclosure intervention.
The Foreclosure Solutions Resource Bank provides links to training opportunities, expert sources, and reference materials to help CDFIs improve their understanding of foreclosure intervention counseling and learn how to effectively implement a counseling program in their communities. The Resource Bank was compiled through the Capacity Building Initiative’s Foreclosure Solutions training series, administered by NeighborWorks® America.
In addition, new supplemental webinars and reference materials have been added to the Capacity Building Initiative’s Financing Healthy Food Options Resource Bank, also available on the CDFI Fund’s website. The new webinars cover topics ranging from how to underwrite small and emerging farms to how to predict the market demand for healthy food retail. The Financing Healthy Food Options training series is administered by the Opportunity Finance Network.
