Director Says CDFI Fund Assessing Impact of Partial Government Shutdown

Thursday, January 31, 2019 - 1:45pm

Jodie Harris, the new director of the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund, today said her organization is assessing the impact of the partial government shutdown and will provide “updates and information in the very near future.” Harris, who became the CDFI Fund director in early January, said CDFI Fund staff is working hard to minimize the effects of the shutdown, but that it will take time to implement a course of action to adjust for it. The CDFI Fund originally planned to announce the 2018 allocations for the New Markets Tax Credit program this winter, but the announcement may be delayed.
