County Federal, A Community Development Financial Institution
Santa Clara County Federal Credit Union is certified as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
CDFIs are banks and credit unions with a history of creating opportunities and access to financial services while providing capital in low-income, disadvantaged communities. Obtaining CDFI certification is the latest step in County Federal’s ongoing commitment to meet the needs of underserved communities.
