The Federation has specialized in serving credit unions in underserved markets. Our member community development credit unions (CDCUs) offer an economic lifeline to low-income communities that have been abandoned by commercial banks and targeted by high-priced check cashers and predatory lenders. CDCUs also provide a platform to serve the broader community through outreach to disadvantaged populations and neighborhoods, participation in government programs, and partnerships with the private-sector in community revitalization efforts.
The Federation currently represents CDCUs that provide credit, savings, transaction services and financial education to more than 4 million residents of low-income communities across the United States, and hold over $33 billion in community-controlled assets.
