April 1, 2016

Native CDFIs have seen first-hand the positive impact increased financial literacy is creating for Native American individuals and families. Since April was officially proclaimed National Financial Literacy Month, it has been a time to share those stories and renew our commitment to empowering our Native American individuals, families, and communities through increased financial knowledge.

The Native CDFI Network has launched a public awareness and advocacy campaign for National Financial Literacy Month in order to….

raise awareness about the importance of financial literacy and call attention to the impact increased financial capability has on Native American individuals, families, and communities.

Throughout the month the Network will be working to capture the attention of the media, policymakers, and funders to share challenges and successful strategies for increasing financial capability in Native communities.
