There are only a few weeks left until August and while many of us may be heading for vacation, it is important to remember that August is a crucial month for advocacy.
From May 16-17, 82 OFN Members and Allies from 59 CDFIs across the country came to D.C. to participate in OFN’s 2017 Advocacy Day. This year was our largest Advocacy Day yet, and we could not have done it without the enthusiasm and dedication from our Advocacy Day participants.
Philadelphia, PA (May 23, 2017)—In a press statement issued today, OFN expressed disappointment at the administration’s FY 2018 budget proposal and highlighted the CDFI multiplier effect of responsible finance for hardworking Americans.
We hope you will add your voice to the #CDFIsInvest campaign to ask Congress to support full funding of the CDFI Fund at $250 million in both FY17 and FY18.
