The NCUA references this in guidance to examiners regarding LICUs
In August, the NCUA sent a letter to approximately 1,000 credit unions, notifying them of their LICU
eligibility and offering them the chance to gain LICU
designation by simply replying to the letter.
1% standards-if any or all of the 1,003 credit unions allowed to apply through the expedited process had chosen to apply through the previous paperwork-laden process to become a LICU
, they would have been approved.
A simple affirmative reply to the opt-in offer will allow them to avoid the usual paperwork required of the approval process and begin utilizing LICU

In 2002, the World Bank launched the LICUS (Low Income Countries Under Stress) initiative to provide special assistance for high-risk countries, defined as scoring a 3.
Without an amendment to existing regulations, LICUs
that choose to accept TARP funds in the form of secondary capital will be required to hold an annually decreasing percentage of TARP funds at 9% interest over five years, a rate potentially higher than other rates that would become available on secondary capital accounts, the agency explained.
