Community Development Revolving Loan Fund

The National Credit Union Administration’s Community Development Revolving Loan Fund (CDRLF) was established by Congress to support credit unions that serve low-income members and communities by making loans and Technical Assistance Grants (TAGs) available to eligible credit unions.  The Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives (the Office) is responsible for administering the CDRLF.  An eligible credit union is one that is: a) federally-chartered and designated as a “low-income” credit union (LICU) as set forth in Section 701.34 of NCUA’s Rules and Regulations; or b) state-chartered with an equivalent low-income designation from its respective state supervisory authority (SSA) and concurrence from NCUA.
