Community Development Banking ListServ (CDB-L)

  • Bringing you community development banking news since 1994.


CDB-L is an active, free, ongoing e-mail discussion group for opportunity finance practitioners. Its more than 4,400 subscribers include all four types of CDFIs—community development loan funds, credit unions, banks, and venture capital funds—as well as like-minded people from corporations, foundations, government, and mainstream finance.

Subscribers typically use the CDB-L to engage each other on a timely topic. They may pose an industry question or share relevant information, such as press releases, events, articles, publications, or job postings.

Founded by Bill Myers in 1994, the CDB-L was acquired by OFN in 2011. OFN is proud to manage this valuable resource for the opportunity finance field.

On July 1, 2014, CDB-L took up its new home on Read our FAQ to learn more about this transition.
