Make plans to join Community Development leaders from across New York State for
NYS CDFIs: Meeting the Moment – our first in-person convening since 2019.
The conference is the premier NY statewide community development event, and this year the panels and workshops will tackle issues that can strengthen our institutions and communities, such as:
Creating and preserving affordable housing and community facilities through the lens of climate resiliency and justice;
Protecting consumers and small businesses from predatory lending;
Helping your clients manage and build credit;
Finding, developing, and retaining staff in a tight market; and
Models for smart growth and regional expansion.
The conference will feature the very latest developments on CDFI Certification and Federal and New York State funding for CDFIs.
