League President/CEO Carrie Hunt to Testify on NCUA Budget Proposal


League President/CEO Carrie Hunt will be among the industry stakeholders testifying on the NCUA budget at a public hearing on Nov. 16.

The agency will hold a public budget briefing at its Central Office, beginning at 2 p.m. The meeting will be livestreamed on NCUA.gov.

The budget calls for a 9.5% increase in total spending in 2024 vs. 2023 and a net gain of 28 new positions.

"It’s vitally important the industry remains engaged with NCUA on its budget priorities, with the goal of striking a balance between protecting against risk, while also fostering an environment of innovation that best positions credit unions to succeed,” said League President/CEO Carrie Hunt.

“Credit unions exist to provide provident credit and everything the agency does has a direct impact on that mission," she noted. "Every dollar NCUA requires of credit unions is money credit unions cannot deploy for the benefit of their members and communities."

The NCUA staff draft budget for 2024–2025 is now available on the agency’s website for review and comment. The draft budget has also been submitted for publication in the Federal Register, and the comment period is open until Nov. 21.

The board is scheduled to approve a final budget at its December open meeting.
