The Award, administered by MacArthur supported Opportunity Finance Network, will be granted to one community development financial institution for each of the next five years to support a product or geographic expansion. MacArthur has been a leading supporter of the opportunity finance field since the early 1980s, investing nearly $250 million in approximately 100 groups nationwide.
