CDFI Fund Awards More than $30 Million in Funds to Member Credit Unions

The Treasury Department’s CDFI Fund recently announced that they have awarded $1.73 billion to 601 CDFIs to offset the impact of the pandemic on hard-hit communities.

Congratulations to the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) member credit unions who received more than $30 million in funds:

A total of 203 credit unions received more than $600 million through the Equitable Recovery Program (ERP).
