United Way Aims to Build Statewide Network for Credit Union Services

The United Way of Jackson County is interested in partnering with credit unions for services and accounts to help increase financial stability among Michigan’s low-income residents. Credit unions providing financial education or financial counseling services are encouraged to assist with this effort by completing a very short survey by July 20. Responses will be utilized to help United Way secure state funding for this initiative and will be used to identify credit union services and membership areas for referrals for accounts and financial education/counseling services.

The low-income population served by utility assistance programs often faces challenges accessing additional resources due to a variety of reasons, including lack of knowledge on where the programming is offered. United Way of Jackson County hopes to build a network of local partners across the state that can offer services in person and via other technology. Ideally, enrollees would be connected directly with a credit union serving their community, and perhaps even provided with the minimum amount necessary to establish an account with your credit union as an incentive for doing so.

Please take a few minutes to answer this very brief survey. United Way of Jackson County needs your response by July 20 in order to prepare its grant application for this program.
