The Community Reinvestment Initiative supports the MCUL's advocacy efforts through the CRI Report. The report is compiled each year using data from the CRI Survey and outside sources. Distributed to lawmakers during the CUNA GAC and throughout the year, the CRI Report contains information that demonstrates the good work credit unions do in their communities and further promotes the credit union tax exemption.
Credit Unions are encouraged to utilize the Community Reinvestment Report in advocacy efforts.
Credit Unions don't take on community service projects because they have to. They do it because service is at the core of credit unions. In 2012, Michigan credit unions supported over 200 individual charities.
