Grants to enhance the capacity and ability of CDFIs

to serve California’s economically disadvantaged communities


The Legislature designed Cal IIP to provide grants enhancing the capacity and ability of community development financial institutions (CDFIs) to provide programs including technical assistance and access to capital to economically disadvantaged communities throughout California.

CDFIs can use the grants to fund services and operations that contribute to the CDFI’s overall community development mission. CDFIs can also use the grants to supplement their net assets and increase their capacity to attract additional funding.
