With inflation leading to increased costs of living, such as housing, groceries, and other daily expenses, there is an essential need to ensure our military members are receiving the best financial services from our Nation’s credit unions.

These grants are designed to bring dual benefit to both credit unions and their members, with the focus on financial empowerment through coaching, and financial well-being through program development and enhancement. Credit unions will gain fully funded training on financial counseling best practices, technical integration tools to measure overall impact and success, program development, enhancement, and management, as well as networking opportunities with other credit unions in the industry.
