  • OFN's State Advocacy Reports and Tools

State Advocacy

States have been incubators of innovation for the opportunity finance industry by providing tax credits, access to capital and opening access to existing programs, allowing CDFIs to broaden their economic impact. CDFIs have also become powerful policy advocates, educating executive and legislative branch decision-makers about the impact these investments make in the lives of real people and their communities.

OFN offers the following tools and reports for state policy advocates:

2013 State Legislation and Advocacy Report

2012 State Legislation and Advocacy Report
