The Ohio Credit Union Foundation believes in building stronger communities and removing barriers through credit unions. The New Beginnings grant program is focused on four demographics (foster care youth, domestic abuse survivors, ex-offenders, addiction recovery) and is designed to give people a way forward and an opportunity to feel financially empowered. The grant will provide one-time support, up to $10,000, for programs, projects, or initiatives that prioritize individuals reentering local communities. Funding is open to both new and existing programs, projects, or initiatives.

Our goal is to distribute at least twenty-five, one-time grants of $10,000 in 2022. Currently, we have provided three. The online grant application is a short easy form. Apply hereReach out to Christy Clark for additional information and questions.

As prudentially regulated, member-owned financial cooperatives, credit unions already comply with a federal and state regulatory framework wrapped around member outreach.
