The $283-million CUNA Credit Union has been approved for a $300,000 grant to help build new headquarters on the site of a former landfill. The grant is from the Wisconsin Department of Commerce, which awarded seven Brownfields Grants to various companies to help redevelop 43.5 acres.

The CUNA Credit Union site was a construction and utility industry landfill, and will be capped by clay to prevent the leakage of materials that include creosote and flyash. CUNA Credit Union said it plans to build a 45,000-square-foot building. It is currently located just across the street from the CUNA/CUNA Mutual campus in Madison.
