The Treasurer’s Office is in charge of investing state and local taxpayer dollars. Through the Community Development Link Deposit and Access to Capital Programs, the Treasurer’s Office deposits funds via time deposits (amounts over the FDIC limit will require collateral) in Approved Program Depositories (banks, credit unions, and savings and loan institutions statewide).

In addition, note that a safety and soundness review of your institutions will be conducted by our office. 


To participate in the Community Development Linked Deposit and Access to Capital Programs and become an Approved Program Depository, you must choose from one of the options listed below.


After you become an Approved Program Depository, you may participate in the Treasurer’s Office Community Development Linked Deposit and Access to Capital Programs.
