March 2, 2020

Credit unions can get insights into serving low-income and underserved communities on a March 11 webinar hosted by the NCUA’s Office of Credit Union Resources and Expansion. The webinar is scheduled begin at 2 p.m. (ET).

“Expanding access and bringing affordable financial services to more people are embedded in the credit union ethos of ‘people helping people,’” NCUA Chairman Rodney Hood said. “I hope credit union stakeholders will take full advantage of this opportunity to hear from regulators and their industry peers.”

Registration for the webinar, “Financial Inclusion: Pathways to Serving the Underserved,” is now open.

Representatives from the NCUA and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will discuss:

  • The current landscape of financial inclusion in the U.S.;
  • Barriers and challenges to low-income populations for financial inclusion; and
  • Innovations in financial inclusion.

Credit union officials will join the webinar to share information about their programs aimed at helping bring greater inclusion and equity to low-income and underserved communities.

This webinar will be closed captioned and archived online approximately three weeks following the live event.
