|Description:|| In 1997 we received a $1 million grant to open our Watsonville office, which has since experienced impressive growth. In 2000/2001, we received more than $1 million to support our Individual Development Account (IDA) Program serving very low-income people. In 2001, SCCCU won the national Louise Herring Award for Philosophy in Action for our "Asset Development for Low-Income Members" program, a tribute to the effectiveness of our service. SCCCU moved the Watsonville office in 2003 to our current location to accommodate our expanding needs and to serve our 10,000 members better.
