A broad coalition of consumer groups filed comments supporting the CDFI Fund’s changes to the application for CDFI certification. In recent years, many harmful financial products have been pushed on underserved communities in the name of “access to credit” and “financial inclusion.” Most CDFIs stay away from these harmful products and are true to their mission but far too many entities have obtained CDFI status despite engaging in these irresponsible financial practices. The coalition supports the Fund’s changes to the CDFI application to close many loopholes that allowed CDFIs to offer harmful financial products.
