Certified CDFIs have until July 31 to file for 2018 report year

Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund on Tuesday reminded that the authorized representatives of currently certified CDFIs must submit their Annual Certification and Data Collection Reports (ACRs) for report year 2018 by this July 31.

The ACR, launched in 2016, must be completed in the CDFI Fund’s Awards Management Information System (AMIS). The report is used by the CDFI Fund to annually assess certified CDFIs’ compliance with certification rules. “Failure to file an ACR will result in termination of your organization’s certified CDFI status, and may also impact any active CDFI Fund program awards your organization may have,” the fund said.

All authorized representatives of certified CDFIs should have received an email notification May 31 from the CDFI Fund’s Office of Certification, Compliance Monitoring and Evaluation regarding the requirement to file. Information and instructions for submitting the reports are here on the CDFI Fund’s website.

Those who did not receive the email notification or who have questions about the 2018 ACR should submit a Service Request from their organizations’ AMIS accounts; contact the CDFI Fund’s Help Desk at ccme@cdfi.treas.gov; or call (202) 653-0421.
