What is a CDFI?
CDFIs work in specific target markets that are underserved by traditional financial institutions. By providing a unique range of financial products and services, that are community development related, CDFIs invest in economically distressed target areas.
NeighborGood Partners Loan Fund voluntarily participates in the Aeris Ratings Report which utilizes the CDFI Assessment and Ratings System (CARS) which includes a rigorous review of community impact, financial strength, and public policy leadership.
Aeris offers data, analysis, and advisory services that support investment in community development financial institutions. It provides the only comprehensive, third-party assessment of CDFI loan funds, helping such funds move toward a more standardized and transparent presentation of their financial and community impact information.
