Foundation launches free disaster recovery app for credit unions
The National Credit Union Foundation, in collaboration with PSCU, is excited to announce the launch of a new CUAid Disaster Recovery app to streamline and connect credit union organizations with one another when disasters strike to quickly coordinate resources.
The CUAid Disaster Recovery App, generously funded by CUNA Mutual Group and FIS, was developed by CU-APPS. As one of the three key pillars of business, the Foundation provides disaster relief to the credit union movement through its CUAid program. CUAid is designed to harness the collective generosity of the movement to provide grant assistance, and this app serves as an extension of that program.
“The need to prepare, connect and share resources has proven to be more important now than ever as our movement has faced an unprecedented time of crisis,” said Gigi Hyland, executive director at the Foundation. “We are hopeful this app will change the way credit unions can respond to natural disasters and allow them to quickly get services back up and running to serve members.”
The Disaster Recovery application serves as a “matching” service for credit unions to source and share emergency resources, such as generators, mobile branches and more to get credit unions back up and running as quickly as possible.
