The Hopi Credit Association was formed on May 1, 1952, by a group of Hopi Individuals as a re-lending program to members of the Hopi Tribe. The Hopi Credit Association's goal is “ To carry out the business of borrowing money, and re-lending it to members for their economic improvement and activities related thereto”.
The Hopi Credit Association is accredited by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (c) 4 tax-exempt organization. HCA is 100% wholly owned and controlled by its members. Those members are all members of the Hopi Tribe. The motto of the Hopi Credit Association is, “For Hopi, By Hopi”
In 1998 HCA was certified as Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) by the Department of the Treasury.
“To enhance the quality of life by providing lending, financial education and training opportunities for our Hopi Senom to become informed consumers”.
