ICUF Emergency Relief Fund (COVID-19 Response)

The Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF) is committed to supporting Iowans in need during this challenging time of financial and health crisis. In partnership with our credit union community, this fund was established to provide support to Iowans impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

How we will help Iowans

The COVID-19 pandemic has not only impacted our daily lives, but it has also caused a disruption to our economy and the income of many Iowans. The Emergency Relief Fund will provide one-time, $500 grants to individual Iowa credit union members experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19.  Additionally, we will fund grants for small businesses and state-wide relief efforts as a collective credit union movement.

April 1

Applications open April 1.

We will be working to get relief to those in need as quickly as possible.


Individual and Small Business Emergency Relief Grants will be provided to Iowa credit union members who have experienced economic hardship as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Eligibility requirements and application information will be posted to this website on April 1.

Grants will be awarded based on funds availability. Donations to the fund will allow us to do more.

Apply for assistance

An online application will be available starting April 1, 2020. Please return to this webpage to apply.


The Emergency Relief Fund would not be possible without the generous donations received from our credit union community. Special thanks to the following credit unions, organizations and individuals for their lead gifts:
