Community Development & Financial Assistance
At Heritage Financial Credit Union we are always looking to provide opportunities. As a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), we are better able to provide extended opportunities to our communities and members that need it most.
Empowering the underbanked in their journey to financial success and assist in their growth beyond banking.
What is a CDFI certification?
We earned our Community Development Financial Institution (“CDFI”) certification from the U.S. Department of Treasury’s CDFI Fund in December of 2019.
A CDFI helps promote access to capital and local economic growth in low income and developing communities across the nation.
This designation allows us to successfully pursue our purpose – providing equal access to the tools, resources and opportunities for learning for improved financial health for all communities, no matter their socio-economic standing.
