DCG partners with the U.S. Department of the Treasury to deliver PR and marketing expertise and support underserved communities.
At DCG, we’re passionate about work that makes a difference.
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our new work with the U.S. Department of the Treasury to do what we do best — provide public relations, marketing, and consulting support — for the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund.
Our first contract with the treasury, the five-year project aligns with DCG’s vision to support underserved communities. Not only do we get to break ground with a new agency, but we get to dig in on meaningful work to connect people with resources they need to thrive.
So, what is the CDFI Fund?
The CDFI Fund helps all people and communities access the investment capital and financial services they need to prosper.
Regardless of where they live, most Americans covet decent jobs, excellent schools, nutritious food, high-quality health care, affordable places to live, and safe places for their children to play. The CDFI Fund aims to support just that by investing in and assisting a national network of lenders, investors, and financial service providers who serve distressed communities that lack access to financing.
In sum, they help financial providers who help those in need.
Here’s where DCG comes in
When DCG was founded, our goal was to give a voice to the principles of health equity and social justice.
Our current work across seven different federal agencies, including the Small Business Administration and the departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, State, and Veterans Affairs has helped shine a light on government agency programs that are helping revitalize disinvested communities.
Just like we’ve done for our work to prevent veteran homelessness, human trafficking, and suicide, we take a nuanced, data-driven approach to drive results. We’ll provide a blueprint to give the CDFI Fund a clear voice to put financial choices back in the hands of the people who have experienced decades of disinvestment and show audiences that where and how money is invested matters.
And that’s the crux of it — our work matters.
Yes, we have more than 100 highly skilled strategists. We use evidence to solve problems and cover everything from research, design, web, paid media, training, change management, and more. We keep the people we serve at the heart of our process; focus on work that supports underserved communities; and create meaningful connections that advance the missions of our clients.
But at the end of the day, we make a difference.
