Washington, D.C. (September 19, 2017) Congressman Steve Pearce released the following statement after the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) awarded a total of $3,780,521 to a number of New Mexico institutions under the FY2017 Community Development Financial Institutions Program (CDFI Program) and Native American CDFI Assistance Program (NACA Program).

Small businesses are the cornerstone of the nation's economy. Today's award will better assist financial institutions in serving and supporting economic development throughout our local communities," stated Rep. Pearce. "New Mexico's economy must continue to diversify to strengthen and grow. I will continue working with federal agencies and local governments to give small businesses every opportunity to start and grow."
