The report highlights NCUF activities related to programs and grants during the past 12 months.
Among the programs the report highlights is NCUF's REAL Solutions initiative, which partners with state credit union leagues to help credit unions build member and consumer financial capability. REAL Solutions has worked with 12 states during the past three years and helped 801 credit union professionals become certified financial counselors. By the end of the 2013, that number will grow to 16 states with an additional 350 to 400 counselors.
In 2012, NCUF funded 19 new grants for $287,387. During the past year, NCUF also refocused the annual grant process moving from a variety of smaller grants to more-focused, larger grants for a bigger impact, the report said.
NCUF also sponsors the Credit Union Development Educator (CUDE) program. Two DE Training classes were held in 2012 and this year, 40 new CUDEs joined the ranks after attending the Spring 2013 DE Training in Madison, Wis. A second training will be held in September. Since the DE Program started, more than 1,000 credit union advocates from more 30 countries have graduated from DE Training.
NCUF reported assets of $6.1 million for 2013.
