(20 ILCS 3820/50)
    Sec. 50. Accreditation.
    (a) A CDFI must be accredited by the Authority in order to receive assistance from the Authority, unless otherwise specified in this Act. The Authority may revoke accreditation from a CDFI that no longer meets the Authority's accreditation criteria. Accreditation of a CDFI under this Act does not, in and of itself, qualify the CDFI to participate in a financing program administered by the Authority.
    (b) Authority criteria for accreditation must include certification under the federal Community Development Banking and Financial Institutions Act of 1994 (Public Law 103-325) and any other criteria that the Authority deems appropriate.
    (c) The Authority shall accredit CDFIs in a manner to ensure the use of CDFIs in all geographic regions of this State to the greatest extent possible.
