NCUA made the decision to liquidate North Dade Community Development Federal Credit Union and discontinue operations after determining the credit union had violated various provisions of its charter, bylaws and federal regulations.

Chartered in 1997, North Dade Community Development Federal Credit Union served a community field of membership that consisted of residents located in Northwest Dade County, Florida.
North Dade Community Development Federal Credit Union is the second federally insured credit union liquidation in 2015.

state-chartered credit unions. At MyCreditUnion.gov, NCUA also educates the public on consumer protection and financial literacy issues.
