Small Grant Opportunity: CDFI Research Consortium

RFP for scholars interested in organizations, financial institutions, race, poverty and community development

I am excited to share with you a small grant funding opportunity and RFP from the CDFI Research Consortium to support research on Community Development Financial Institutions and their efforts to channel credit and capital to low-income and historically marginalized communities – link to RFP.  The Consortium was recently launched by the Center for Impact Finance at the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire (link to webpage), and its research priorities align well with many of our own. It is keen to include research on the organizational and institutional structures of CDFIs, CDFIs’ relationships with other financial institutions, community based organizations, and local communities, and how those shape CDFIs’ capacities to deliver on their core missions. 

Please a look and pass this announcement along to interested colleagues. Proposals are due June 30, 2023.

The awards will be made to “New Scholars” (i.e., scholars who have received their Ph.D. no earlier than 2008) who will then work collaboratively with one of the CPI’s Research Groups to carry out the proposed research project.
