As part of our overarching strategy to unite and strengthen the Native CDFI industry, the Native CDFI Network has developed an online Policy & Advocacy Toolkit. Each section of the toolkit contains important information designed to assist Native CDFIs in becoming an active voice for the Native communities across the country. A printable version of the Policy & Advocacy Toolkit is also available for download by clicking below.

Policy & Advocacy Toolkit

Our hope is that this guide will inspire you to launch or revitalize your Native CDFI’s policy and advocacy program. We encourage Native CDFIs to connect with networks, like the Native CDFI Network, to garner the support and solidarity they need to overcome the challenges faced by their communities and to promote their effectiveness in finding solutions and creating opportunities to long-lasting change for our Native people.
