As wildfires devastate parts of California and Nevada, CUAid is available to financially assist the communities and members that local credit unions serve. This action-response program harnesses the generosity of the credit union movement to provide grant assistance for disaster relief.

The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues and the National Credit Union Foundation would like to remind League members to file an emergency financial assistance application if their credit union or members need immediate help.

How to Activate CUAid
Please consider the following resources to receive assistance:
