About Organization:
Organization History and Background: The New York City Financial Network Action Consortium (NYCfNAC) was established in 1999 to strengthen the city’s leading community development credit unions (CDCU) and to address the lack of affordable and comprehensive financial services in New York City's low-income communities. NYCfNAC’s mission recognizes that every low-income person has the right to save, borrow, invest, build assets, become knowledgeable consumers of financial services and achieve greater financial security, and that CDCUs are the best financial institutions to achieve this objective. Accordingly, NYCfNAC is dedicated to building a strong collaborative credit union network in New York City to enable the credit unions to serve more low-income individuals, reinvest in their communities, create economic opportunity for residents, and become more sustainable financial institutions.

NYCfNAC works intensively with four credit unions that serve predominantly low-income and immigrant members in the Lower East Side, Harlem, Washington Heights, Bushwick and Bedford- Stuyvesant. Together, the credit unions serve more than 20,000 members. NYCfNAC's program activities include: membership-building, microenterprise and small business lending, the development of new products and services, accounting and internal auditing, and credit union infrastructure development.
