Connecting regularly with statewide officials empowers the Movement to champion the work credit unions do for 3.1 million members while exploring opportunities to serve more people, families, businesses, and communities through financial cooperatives. This ongoing Movement advocacy effort led to State Treasurer Robert Sprague (R-Findlay) championing Ohio credit union inclusion in state-sponsored consumer and business lending programs that help bring families together through adoption and support farmers that drive the state economy. Ohio Movement leaders recently met with Treasurer Sprague to discuss how the Family Forward and AG-LINK linked-deposit lending programs impact people and communities through credit unions. Treasurer Sprague applauded Ohio credit unions for leveraging linked-deposit programming to serve members and encouraged financial cooperatives to do more agribusiness lending through AG-LINK to help farms meet a challenging economic environment and rising costs.
The League will continue working directly with Treasurer Sprague to empower credit unions to help more Ohioans, especially through greater access to state linked-deposit programming.
