As a public charity, IMPACT can receive funds to pilot programs to serve members of the community in ways that are outside the charter of the Credit Union. Many of these push the envelope of financial services into territory which is found to be profitable despite traditional attitudes. Many ideas developed at Alternatives have since become standard practice. Examples range from adjustable rate mortgages with caps on the rate changes, developed during the Savings and Loan Crisis in the '80s, to strategies for developing and building Credit , to current (2019) projects in character-based lending for small business loans.
