NCUA Green Lights New Charter Application for Diverge PFCU

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) has extended its approval for a new charter application for Diverge, a Proposed Federal Credit Union (PFCU). Diverge PFCU is a groundbreaking initiative that will expand financial access for historically unbanked individuals and their families.

The initial focus of the proposed credit union is to provide a financial home for marginalized people in the justice-involved and LGBTQI+ communities. An estimated 2 million people in these populations are unbanked.
