Financial Literacy For All

Problem

Currently, several groups manage various financial literacy resources and tools within their own domains but there is no central location or resource for people of every age to leverage these tools. Additionally, there is no group to look for partnership opportunities across these organizations and resources.

Solution

State Treasurer Cowell has proposed centralizing these financial literacy resources, both public and private, in a one stop portal for every age and life cycle stage for greater access to these tools. Through partnerships with local banks, financial planning groups, and other community resources and sponsors the program would gain funding as well as services to be featured within this central resource. Understanding how to manage your money and save for the future is critical knowledge at any age and helps everyone learn how to contribute to our growing economy.
