WASHINGTON (8/1/14)--In a new partnership with national and local organizations across the country, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will help to train social services staff to provide financial education and tools to clients with low-to-moderate incomes.
As part of that partnership, the CFPB Wednesday unveiled a new online toolkit called "Your Money, Your Goals."
The bureau bills it as a comprehensive guide to help consumers make empowered financial decisions, and it addresses topics like budgeting daily expenses, managing debt, and avoiding financial tricks and traps.
Credit unions are mentioned throughout the tool and are included in the section to select financial services products and providers. The resource is available online in English and Spanish and includes information, checklists, and worksheets consumers can use in their everyday lives.
