Money Smart Week April 20-27 for better financial management

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Money Smart Week is a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. The effort was created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in 2002. Money Smart Week partners will be hosting their events April 20-27 in Independence, Waterloo and Cedar Falls.

This is achieved through the collaboration and coordinated effort of hundreds of organizations across the country including businesses, financial institutions, schools, libraries, not-for-profits, government agencies and the media.

These groups come together once a year to stress the importance of financial literacy, inform consumers about where they can get help and provide free educational seminars and activities throughout the week.

Programming is offered to all demographics and income levels and covers all facets of personal finance from establishing a budget to first time home buying to estate planning.
