Credit unions with questions about CDRLF grants may contact the NCUA’s Office of Credit Union Resources and Expansion at CUREAPPS@ncua.gov.
The agency will administer approximately $3.5 million in CDRLF grants to the most-qualified applicants, subject to the availability of funds. Grants will be awarded in five categories and two pilot initiatives.
A credit union applying for a CDRLF grant must have an active account with the System for Award Management, or SAM, and a unique entity identifier number they will receive when they register for a SAM account. Credit unions with an existing registration with SAM must recertify and maintain an active status annually. SAM users can register or recertify their account by following the instructions for registration (opens new window) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website.
