Bloomington, Ind. – Mayor John Hamilton will join South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg for an event at the Century Center in South Bend Tuesday, June 4. Having established Bloomington as the country’s first “CDFI Friendly City,” Hamilton has been invited to participate in South Bend’s own efforts to establish CDFI Friendly status. During Tuesday’s conference, “Investing in Our Future: Expanding South Bend’s Commitment to Inclusive Economic Growth,” the mayors will participate in a panel discussion with financial and civic leaders from around the country to explore the feasibility of and establish principles for a CDFI Friendly South Bend.
“Cities are finding ways to spur economic growth in sustainable, equitable ways with creative financing such as that offered through CDFIs,” said Hamilton. “I’m enthusiastic about sharing Bloomington’s experience with Mayor Buttigieg and the South Bend community.”
Attendance at the conference is limited to invited guests and members of the media. Opening remarks and the first panel will take place from 9:45 to 11:15 a.m., with Buttigieg and Hamilton available to the press from 11:15 to 11:30 a.m. The Century Center is located at 120 Doctor M.L.K. Jr Blvd. in South Bend.
