2016 USDA Rural Development Award
WCCU Credit Union Named Gold Million Dollar Lender
USDA Rural Development named Westby Co-op Credit Union (WCCU) as a recipient of the 2016 Gold Million Dollar Lender Award.
The Award is presented each year to lenders who have partnered with, and made a significant contribution to, supporting Wisconsin rural residents looking to become homeowners through the USDA Guaranteed Rural Housing (GRH) Program.
In fiscal year 2016, WCCU utilized more than $2 million of GRH program funds by financing home purchases to help moderate income families in Wisconsin. Nearly 2,400 families across Wisconsin were able to purchase a home last year through the GRH loan program, totaling nearly $318 million.
The Million Dollar Lender Award is given at three levels and is based on the total amount of funding utilized by the lender. WCCU Credit Union was recognized as a Gold level for disbursing more than $2 million during the past year.
2016 marks the 15th year in a row that WCCU Credit Union has received a lender award from the USDA GRH program.
