Support Dodd-Frank’s Small Dollar Loan Program

As an alternative, Community Development Financial Institutions often provide more safe and affordable financial services and products including small dollar loans. Section 1206 of
Dodd-Frank authorized the CDFI Fund to provide financial assistance for the creation of loan loss reserves to support small dollar loan offerings among CDFIs, including certified banks and credit unions. The program has the potential to help individuals build
credit, access affordable capital and enter the mainstream financial system.  Unfortunately, the program has yet to be funded since its authorization in Dodd-Frank almost a decade ago.

Accordingly, we urge you to join us in supporting funding for this important program. For more information or to sign on to the letter, please contact Ernie Jolly (ernie.jolly@mail.house.gov) in Rep. Meeks’ office
or Eric Henshall (eric.henshall@mail.house.gov) in Rep. Eshoo’s office. 

Thank you,
