Cape Regional Credit Union and Saint Luke's Credit Union (Kansas City) just received their Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) certifications from the U.S. Treasury. This news comes on the heels of a previous announcement that 13 Missouri credit unions made history when they received a mass CDFI certification - the largest number of CDFI certifications granted in one state at one time.
The additional certifications of Cape Regional and Saint Luke's makes Missouri's CDFI application acceptance rate 100 percent for 2013. The Missouri Credit Union Charitable Foundation (MCUCF) funded the initiative, which was a joint venture between the Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) and CU Strategic Planning.
