NCUA Accepting CDFI Certification Applications

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) has opened its first streamlined application round for Community Development Financial Institutions Fund certification.

Federally insured low-income credit unions can now apply for certification as community development financial institutions through the streamlined application process developed by the National Credit Union Administration and the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund.

NCUA will host three streamlined CDFI-certification application rounds in 2017:

  • Feb. 13 through March 17
  •  May 1 through May 26
  • Aug. 7 through Sept. 1

NCUA’s full-scale program began this past December. More information is available on the CDFI Streamlined Application Program Guide.

Low-income credit unions that do not qualify for the streamlined program may still obtain a CDFI certification through the CDFI Fund’s standard application.
