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 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 CU plans to build a 45,000-square-foot building.
