A $20,000 multi-year restricted grant was approved for the Haiti Project during the next two years at $10,000 per year, the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) said (Life is a Highway April 29).

The grant supplements an anticipated $66,100 in contributions from PCUA, 22 state credit unions and the World Council of Credit Unions over the same period, bringing total project investment to $86,100. Funds will be used to equip, train and evaluate three to five Haitian credit unions and their staff members.

The board approved 20 unrestricted projects, valued at $78,717.

The board also viewed a film of the Westmoreland County Reality Fair. The film was produced by Thomas Gaffron of Alive Digital Media LLC, and coordinated by Susan Lawson of Norwin Teachers FCU, North Huntington, Pa. It highlighted the work of Westmoreland County credit unions during a fair held in October.

The film also will be shown at the annual Foundation Breakfast next month, and distributed to the National Credit Union Foundation and Pennsylvania credit unions.
