Native CDFIs are designed to overcome barriers to financial services in Indian Country by providing training and education tailored to tribal communities. By increasing the creation and expansion of CDFIs, the Native American CDFI Fund improves tribal members’ access to credit, capital and financial services.
The first ever White House Summit on Financial Capability and Empowerment will highlight the importance of financial empowerment for low and moderate income Americans, as well as the critical role that grassroots leaders in states, tribes, local governments and communities play in helping people improve their financial capability.
The summit will also examine federal programs serving tribal communities, such as the Small Business Administration Office of Native American Affairs and the United States Department of Commerce.
View portions of the summit at www.WhiteHouse.gov/live and hear Tanya Fiddler discuss the Four Bands Community Fund’s success at financially empowering the Cheyenne River Sioux community at 2:15 p.m. ET.
