Our mission is to support innovators in creating consumer-friendly financial products and services. To do this, we:
- Engage with the innovator community
- Participate in initiatives that inform our policy work
- Stay on top of emerging trends to remain a forward-looking organization
Talk to us
We have a lot to talk about with the innovation community. Have an idea for a pilot or trial? Want to talk over a barrier to a new idea? Other thoughts? Email us at ProjectCatalyst@cfpb.gov.
Work with us
Pitch a pilot
Groups that have an idea for a consumer-friendly innovation, and want to work with the CFPB to make it happen, can pitch pilots.
Run a disclosure trial
We’ve proposed a policy to allow companies to run trials on disclosures to see if we can get them to work better. In the future, we’ll be looking for partners that want to run these trials.
Use our data
Use the API of our consumer complaint data to make the market better.
Get to know us
We’re a new agency, so you might not know much about us yet. We’d like to change that.
How we’ll handle your information
We won’t voluntarily disclose information you share with Project Catalyst unless you agree in writing or we’re required to by law. We are subject to the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552, but it exempts personally identifiable information, trade secrets, and confidential commercial information from disclosure, and we’ll assert those exemptions to protect your information wherever appropriate.
