Invest in Wisconsin hosts Fifth Annual CDFI Day at the Capitol IN PERSON!

April 11, 2022
On Monday, April 11, 2022, we were back at the Capitol to hold our fifth annual CDFI Day at the Capitol! The time we spent together was a great opportunity to speak to the amazing impacts CDFI’s have in the communities we serve, share stories and examples of how those impacts are felt, and meet a few new faces, and re-connect with others. We also spoke on behalf of Assembly Bill 900 and Senate Bill 859 which provide incentives to investors that support CDFI’s across the state!
