Tri County Area FCU joins FHLB Pittsburgh
PITTSBURGH (7/30/12)--Tri County Area FCU in Pottstown, Pa., is the newest member to join the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh (FHLBank).

Tri-County becomes the 26th credit union member of FHLBank Pittsburgh--a three-state financial institution cooperative comprising credit unions, thrifts, commercial banks and insurance companies in Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia (Real Estate Weekly News Aug. 3).

Membership in the privately funded FHLBank Pittsburgh augments Tri-County's liquidity with access to FHLBank's financial services such as low-cost loans (advances), which the credit union can use for general asset/liability management and financing, and community lending, the News said.

The $109.3 million asset Tri County Area FCU serves more than 16,000 members working  in 41 townships and boroughs in three counties.
