CU House is a permanent presence for credit unions on Capitol Hill. It is a welcoming embassy for credit union visitors in Washington, D.C., and a grassroots advocacy tool. “Hike the Hill” receptions and other events are held there. The house was constructed through efforts of state credit union leagues, the American Association of Credit Union Leagues and the Credit Union National Association. It is sustained by credit union and other individual contributions.
