The United States Department of Treasury is an executive department as well as the official treasury of the United States federal government. The work of the treasury generally involves the process of ensuring and safeguarding the country's economic and financial systems.
The programs and initiatives of the treasury are greatly influenced by its general agency mission which is to create and sustain a strong economy and generate various economic and job opportunities by way of encouraging the conditions that foster and highlight economic growth and stability, both inside and the country and overseas, strengthening national security by eliminating and appropriately responding to threats, and ultimately, protecting the integrity of the country's financial system while simultaneously managing the government's finances and resources.
One of the prominent programs of the Department of Treasury is the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund, otherwise known as CDFI Fund.
Community Development Financial Institutions are basically financial institutions who possess the ability to provide credit and financial services to underserved industries and communities.
