About Community Resource FCU:

Established in 1935 to serve Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation employees in Albany and Hudson districts, Community Resource Federal Credit Union (formerly New York Power & Light Service Building Employees FCU) has undergone transformative growth. Evolving from Niagara Mohawk North Albany Employees FCU in 1951 to Niagara Mohawk Albany FCU in 1979, the credit union expanded its reach further with the merger of N.M.P. Albany Administrative FCU in 1977. Relocating to 20 Wade Road in 1996 after an extensive renovation, the credit union embraced a broader membership as Community Resource FCU. With a mission to improve the lives of its members and the community by providing access to affordable, reliable, and solution-based financial services, Community Resource FCU obtained a community charter in 2000, now serving Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, and Rensselaer County residents. Committed to becoming the financial institution of choice, the credit union aims to provide exceptional service and go above and beyond to help its members achieve their financial goals.
