Money Smart Week 2021

Money Smart Week, April 10-17, aims to help people better manage their personal finances.

Short (15-20 minute) online programs will focus on a different “Money Smart” theme each day of the week.  Topics include Basic Banking, Student Loans, Housing Protections, and Managing Personal Finances during Covid-19.  Sign up here:

We’ll also be sharing online games to teach children basic financial skills related to earning, saving and spending money.  These interactive games are designed for children ages 7 to 11 but are appropriate for other ages as well.  You'll be able to find the games on our Facebook page:
