Credit unions eligible to apply for the NCUA’s minority depository institutions mentoring grants now have until Friday, July 31, to submit their applications.
The NCUA will make grants of up to $25,000 to help small institutions establish mentoring programs with larger, low-income-designated credit unions to provide expertise and guidance in serving low-income and underserved populations.
Interested credit unions can apply through the agency’s CyberGrants online portal. Application guidelines are available online here. Staff from the NCUA’s Office of Credit Union Resources and Expansion will be available to answer questions about the program through Wednesday, July 29. Credit unions should submit questions to staff by email to CUREAPPS@ncua.gov.
