Financial Empowerment Center Exploration Grant

Financial Empowerment Center Exploration Grant

 

Gaithersburg is one of six municipalities to receive grant funding through the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund to explore the feasibility of establishing a Financial Empowerment Center (FEC). Currently operating in 26 other locations across the country, FECs provide free, professional one-on-one counseling to help residents manage their finances, pay down debt, increase savings, and establish/build credit, and access mainstream banking products. Such a Center could build upon Gaithersburg's offerings through Bank On Gaithersburg and the Gaithersburg Financial Wellness Coalition.

 

This is a City of Gaithersburg, Maryland announcement.
