February 26, 2019 Press Release
"I have a strong suspicion that the current Administration will propose yet again to slash the CDFI Fund’s budget for the coming fiscal year. And once again, it will be up to Congress to weigh the funding options for this bipartisan program that plays such an important role in generating economic growth and opportunity in some of our nation’s most distressed communities."
