The Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) today released the qualified equity investment (QEI) issuance thresholds that will be in place for the 2017 allocation round, which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2017.

The minimum thresholds are all as of 11:59 p.m. ET, July 20, 2017. The threshold is 100 percent for the calendar year 2011 allocations, 80 percent for 2012, 70 percent for 2013, 50 percent for 2014 and 30 percent for 2015-16. Rural CDEs have a threshold of 30 percent for 2014 and are not required to issue a minimum amount for 2015-16. Allocatees that received multiple allocations between 2011 and 2016 and don’t meet a minimum threshold for a specific round can qualify by reaching at least 90 percent of their cumulative allocation amounts.
