How to Apply

OFN welcomes all CDFIs that are committed to performance to apply for membership. Our standards for membership are different and generally higher than the CDFI Fund's requirements for CDFI certification. Not all OFN members are CDFI Fund-certified and not all CDFI Fund-certified CDFIs qualify to be OFN members.

To apply please complete OFN's online membership application. You will be able to provide all necessary attachments when completing the application. You can view our current dues structure here. If your CDFI is not eligible to become a member, we invite you, as well as non-CDFI organizations and individuals who support OFN's mission, to become OFN allies.

For more information, email Elizabeth on our membership team at
