April is National Financial Literacy Month!
In 2004, the U.S.Congress designated April as National Financial Literacy Month. Our joint goal this April is to raise awareness about the importance of financial literacy education, especially now with the economic uncertainties following Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its effects throughout 2021. Yesterday, the White House released the following Proclamation on National Financial Capability Month. Most of our partners are promoting events and efforts this month (some below); we hope you participate and share.
