The External LinkCommunity Development Investment Resource Guide (CDIRG) helps bankers and others understand and meet their community needs under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). The guide, which recently was updated, is one of several tools available on External LinkCRA OneSource, a one-stop site for CRA information.

CDIRG highlights national, multistate and state resources to assist with CRA programming. It also lists the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs) lending in the Federal Reserve’s Tenth District. The seven states of the Tenth District are Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wyoming.

CDIRG is available on the website as a PDF. The website also offers a convenient search feature of CDFIs and MDIs.
