Program Description

Through the Bank Enterprise Award Program (BEA Program), the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) supports FDIC-insured financial institutions around the country that are dedicated to financing and supporting community and economic development activities. The BEA Program complements the community development activities of insured depository institutions (i.e., banks and thrifts) by providing financial incentives to expand investments in CDFIs and to increase qualified lending, investment, and service activities within economically distressed communities. Providing monetary awards for increasing community development activities leverages the CDFI Funds dollars and puts more capital to work in distressed communities throughout the nation.
