Bank Enterprise Award Program

The Bank Enterprise Award (BEA) Program rewards FDIC-insured depository institutions for increasing their investments and support of CDFIs and advancing their community development financing and service activities in the most economically distressed communities. These awards are intended to help banks offset some of their risk, maintain capital requirements, and create meaningful community impact. BEA is awarded to CDFIs that support communities with significant poverty levels and high unemployment.

CDFI Program Financial Assistance

The CDFI Program builds the capacity of CDFIs to meet their strategic goals, empowering them to drive community revitalization. Financial Assistance (FA) awards allow CDFIs to enter new markets, expand their products and services, or serve new targeted populations. Successful applicants tell a consistent and compelling story of how FA award dollars will be leveraged to meet the needs of the communities they serve. FA Awards can be applied to Lending Capital, Capital Reserves, Loan Loss Reserves, Development Services, or Financial Services.

TA Awards can be used to achieve CDFI Certification or invested in activities that support a CDFIs strategic goals and achieve community impact, such as technology purchases, staffing, or training.
