NCUA to host low-income and underserved webinar

Credit unions that are looking to offer more products and services to low-income or underserved members should attend a free NCUA webinar on Jan. 15. The "Profiling Products and Services for Underserved" webinar begins at 2pm EST. This is a follow-up webinar from the Jan. 23, 2013 webinar "Strategic Use of the Low-Income Designation."

The best part of these NCUA webinars is that credit unions give examples of the different stages of products and services that meet the need of the undeserved market. Staff from three credit unions will share how they developed unique offerings like:

  • Second-chance loans and second-chance checking accounts
  • Citizenship loans
  • An alternative to payday loans funded with U.S. Treasury Community Development Financial Institutions Fund proceeds
  • Value-added partnerships with municipalities and community service organizations

The webinar also will provide an overview of the NCUA Community Development Revolving Loan Fund 2014 Grants Round. The webinar is open to credit unions of all asset sizes. You can register on the NCUA's website
 
Participants can also submit questions in advance at WebinarQuestions@ncua.gov. The subject line of the email should read, “Underserved Products and Services Webinar.”
