Investment Connection highlights organizations with community and economic development projects that are potentially eligible for funding or financing under the Community Reinvestment Act. These projects aim to support people and businesses in communities with low and moderate incomes or are distressed or underserved. Selected organizations have a unique opportunity to pitch their proposals to bankers, CDFIs, foundations and other funding entities with similar missions. During this live virtual pitch session, organizations will present lending, investment and service opportunities available in Maryland and Greater Washington, D.C. Projects address small business and farm finance, affordable housing and racial equity. Visit the Richmond Fed’s event page for participating organizations.
Funding entities seeking to provide grant, equity investment, financing, and/or service support to projects deemed potentially eligible for Community Reinvestment Act. These include bankers, foundations, government entities, and non-profit organizations.
Potential funders can register for a free, no-obligation account with username and password to view proposals available for funding by visiting the Investment Connection Funders Portal.
