About the Partnership

The Council of Development Finance Agencies (CDFA) and The Opportunity Exchange have launched an exclusive partnership to provide the development finance industry with access to The Opportunity Exchange Platform. This innovative platform increases opportunities for CDFA members to integrate modern technical tools into their local community and economic development strategies.

The platform provides tools and support to help development finance agencies and economic development organizations across the country market their community, identify and manage a project pipeline, and facilitate connections with a national investor audience.
