Reaching Minority Households

Non-Citizen Lending Program

Improve economic access in your community. 

Credit unions in the pilot have agreed to offer the program, which includes a variety of consumer lending products, including credit cards, personal loans, and vehicle loans, to non-citizens with the same rates as traditional consumer lending products. The program began at Point West Credit Union in 2008; as of 2015 the program has provided $2.1 million in loans to non-citizen borrowers.
