Credit Unions May Still Apply for Urgent Needs Grants Related to Natural Disasters
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (July 15, 2020) – Funding for the COVID-19 urgent need grants initiative has been fully utilized and new applications will no longer be accepted, the National Credit Union Administration announced today.
The NCUA will complete the review process for COVID-19 urgent need grant applications that are currently pending, and the agency will notify credit unions of its decisions on those applications by email.
Urgent need grants will remain available for events not related to the pandemic. Federally insured, low-income-designated credit unions may apply for grants up to $7,500 for emergency and natural disaster relief.
Eligible credit unions wishing to apply for urgent needs grants should review the NCUA’s Urgent Need Grants Guidelines. Apply through the agency’s CyberGrants portal (opens new window) (You will be leaving NCUA.gov and accessing a non-NCUA website. We encourage you to read the NCUA's exit link policies.

Credit unions with questions should contact the Office of Credit Union Resources and Expansion by email at CUREApps@ncua.gov.
