History
 
Chartered in 1937, one year after the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) established its presence in Fort Worth, Texas, NRCS Federal Credit Union provides a wide range of financial services to almost 1500 members located in 38 states and other countries. Originally, the Credit Union membership was only open to the employees of SCS who worked in Fort Worth. Subsequent field of membership expansions included SCS employees working at SCS sites within about a 30 mile radius of Fort Worth, and eventually, to all SCS employees who worked in the state of Texas, family members of members, and Retirees of SCS. In 1995, the name of the Credit Union was changed to Natural Resources Conservation Service Federal Credit Union (NRCS) to reflect the name change of the agency.
