Community Development Financial Institution

Citizens National Bank holds the prestigious certification as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) designated by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s CDFI Fund, a distinction shared by fewer than 125 banks nationwide. This certification reflects our commitment to promoting community development and serving low-income areas with vital financial services.

As a CDFI Bank, our focus is fueling economic growth in Mississippi’s underserved communities. We achieve this by financing businesses, creating jobs, aiding neighborhood revitalization, and improving consumer product and service access. Our mission is not just to provide credit and capital but to do so in a way that is accessible and beneficial to those in economically disadvantaged areas.

For more information about Citizens National Bank’s designation as a CDFI, contact Community Development Director Tra Alford or Community Development Officer Tyeisha Smith.
