Below is a list of local financial education coalitions—organizations working together at the local level to strengthen their financial education efforts and to provide a full range of services to their communities.
What Is a Local Coalition?
Local coalitions are community-based, bringing together educators and service providers to more cohesively and comprehensively serve the people living in those areas.
Why Local Coalitions?
The value of local coalitions stems from the fact that the local level is where financial education and assistance are accessed.
We hope you contact a coalition in your community to learn how you can participate, or, if your community does not yet have a coalition, contact us to discuss development. If you are part of a local coalition not included in our list, please let us know so that we can share your information and help with your efforts.
