Reminder: CDRLF 2021 grant round ends June 26 | 2021-06-16


Designated low-income credit unions seeking Community Development Revolving Loan Fund grants, including MDI mentoring grants, have until June 26 to submit their applications.

Grant conditions, application instructions and other important information are available on the grant program page from NCUA.gov.

The NCUA will administer approximately $ 1.5 million in CDRLF grants to the most qualified applicants, subject to the availability of funds, in three categories:

  • Awareness underserved (maximum reward of $ 50,000);
  • Mentoring with minority deposit-taking institutions (maximum reward of $ 25,000); and
  • Digital and cybersecurity services (maximum premium of $ 7,000).

Credit unions will use the The NCUA e-grants portal to submit their candidacies. Credit unions with further questions about CDRLF grants can contact the NCUA Credit Union Resources and Development Office at [email protected]

In addition to being a designated low income institution, a credit union must have an active account with the federal government Rewards management system, a Universal Data Number System Number, and a commercial and government entity number to be eligible for the program.

New users of the rewards management system can register by following the instructions of the Quick start guide for new registrations.

Credit unions with an existing SAM registration must recertify and maintain active status each year. They can recertify or renew the status of their SAM account by following the instructions of the Quick start guide for renewing registrations.

Credit unions can obtain a Data Universal Number System by visiting the Dun & Bradstreet website or call 1.866.705.5711 to register or search for a DUNS number.
