ARLINGTON, Va. – Supporters of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Community Development Financial Institutions Fund report that House and Senate budget negotiators have approved $61 million in federal funding for the CDFI fund. The amount represents roughly $10 more than the House had approved earlier this year and roughly $9 million less than the Senate had approved.

Not having that happen this year represents a victory, the group said.
