ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Aug. 18, 2016) – Credit unions certified as Community Development Financial Institutions can have a greater impact on their communities, and the application process for certification is becoming easier.

The new issue includes a column from NCUA Board Member J. Mark McWatters and articles from NCUA offices on the agency’s initiatives and on supervisory, regulatory and compliance issues important to all federally insured credit unions.
