Credit Unions: Join Initiative to Help Industry Secure Share of $27 Billion to Provide Green Loans to Aid Your Members, Communities

We want to make you aware of an exciting opportunity that could provide significant grant funds for credit unions interested in green lending. Ecority, an independent nonprofit, is asking credit unions and Community Development Financial Institutions to submit an electronic letter of interest which it will use to help secure a share of some $20 billion from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF). 

Those federal GGRF monies are designed to help finance home and business energy improvements, electric vehicles, net-zero building construction, solar panels and more. Note: Completing the letter of interest carries no obligation to participate in the program. Also of note, the program grants for which credit unions would be eligible will aid low- and moderate-income communities. As of this date, Ecority is composed of credit unions and CDFIs in 43 states, including Virginia’s own Langley Federal Credit Union.
