Credit unions, leagues, associations, and more nationwide continue do amazing things for communities and consumers dealing with the affects from COVID-19. For many folks, the challenges continue or they may just be starting as government assistance subsides.
So we like to highlight these efforts from time to time and Iowa Credit Union Foundation is right there in the mix with its efforts helping Iowans cope with the current and future challenges brought on by the pandemic. The Foundation's latest effort consists of launching a $500,000 emergency relief fund for the state's residents hit hard by the coronavirus.
Iowa Credit Union Foundation Executive Director Jaimie Miller joined us on the show to share details on how this fund will help communities and residents within the state stay afloat until life and business get back to somewhat normal.
We asked Jaimie how these funds will be dispersed, how this idea came about, what goals do they have with this program, how credit unions can participate (they already have 36 credit unions participating), and much, much more.
Another inspiring story from the industry that we're happy to share. Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
