People can challenge themselves to review and improve their finances during National Financial Literacy Month in April.
One of the goals of National Financial Literacy Month is to encourage people to identify their financial weaknesses, develop a budget, increase their financial literacy, and learn about saving to improve their finances.
Another goal of National Financial Literacy Month is to give children the skills and resources to make informed money decisions now and in the future.
Financial coaching and education can help people make decisions that will improve their current situation and future money well-being.
“Financial literacy provides education, resources, tools and skills that empower residents to make sound financial decisions,” said Margie Leon, certified advisor with VCE’s Department of Housing and Urban Development.
