PA CDFI Network

The PA CDFI Network is a coalition of 18 PA-based community development financial institutions that primarily provide financing options for small businesses.

The Network of mission-driven financial institutions works in all 67 counties in the commonwealth to provide the small business community with access to financing and technical assistance. This first-of-its kind statewide collaboration leverages shared resources and mobilizes its extensive local networks to ensure economic prosperity for all Pennsylvanians. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania selected the Network to administer its COVID-19 Relief Pennsylvania Statewide Small Business Assistance Program: a statewide grant program targeting small businesses impacted by business closure orders due to the COVID-19 public health crisis.
