About the NAFI Data

The map connects you to data from the following sources:

For Native-owned banks: For Native-serving credit unions: For certified community development financial institutions (CDFIs):
  • The U.S. Treasury CDFI Fund’s site https://www.cdfifund.gov/programs-training/certification/cdfi/Pages/default.aspx, with basic identifying information about CDFIs certified as Native CDFIs.
  • For the Native CDFIs that are neither banks nor credit unions, financial data from online IRS 990 or 990EZ reports and the Internal Revenue Service’s database of 990 information, provided that the CDFI is a non-profit organization that files publicly available tax returns.
  • Not included are data on for-profit CDFIs that are neither banks nor credit unions (e.g., Citizen Potawatomi Community Development Corportation) and data on non-profit CDFIs for which the IRS reports no tax filings. Where data are missing, “NA” is used to signify “Not available.”
Additional Notes
  • Three Native-owned banks are also certified as Native CDFIs, and six Native-serving credit unions are also certified as Native CDFIs. These dual-status institutions are mapped as Bank/CDFI or CU/CDFI, respectively, and bank or credit union Call Reports are used for their financial data.
  • The map omits two bank holding companies (companies that own banks) that are certified Native CDFIs. One is Chickasaw Banc Holding Company, which owns Bank2 in Oklahoma. We report data on Bank2 instead. Another is the Native American Bancorporation of Colorado, which owns Native American Bank. We report data on Native American Bank instead.
  • Data for Citizen Potawatomi Community Development Corporation, a Native CDFI organized as a for-profit organization, are from its audited financial statements.
  • Data shown for the for-profit Indian Land Capital Corporation are those of its parent organization, the nonprofit Indian Land Tenure Foundation.
