WASHINGTON – CUNA today urged lawmakers to make Troubled Asset Relief Program funds available to credit unions and a change in the rules to allow credit unions more access to outside capital.

“We have been very concerned that the implementation of the TARP program has excluded the participation of credit unions,” CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica wrote to the leaders of the House Financial Services and Senate Finance committees. “Credit unions are included among the institutions defined in Section 3 of the Act as financial institutions.
