April 1, 2013 – To make up for temporary accessibility issues, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund is giving all CDFIs with certification or recertification applications due April 1-8 until the later date to complete those.
The CDFI Fund website and database were inaccessible for several days. Here are the specific deadline extensions:
- Currently certified CDFIs that were previously required to submit applications for recertification from April 1 to April 8 are now required to submit them by Monday, April 8, 11:59 p.m. Eastern.
- New CDFI certification applicants that have pending CDFI Program financial assistance applications are now required to submit applications for certification by Monday, April 8, 11:59 p.m. Eastern.
All other CDFI recertification deadlines remain unchanged. An updated list of recertification application due dates are online. Institutions can also get guidance about mandatory recertification on the CDFI Fund website.
Any questions should be directed to the CDFI Fund's Help Desk at 202-653-0421, or by email to email@example.com.
