GreenPath Debt Solutions, a nationwide non-profit credit counseling and education organization, is partnering with the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), to bring free financial education to libraries across the country.
The "CFPB Community Financial Education Project" has matched up local non-profit credit counseling educators and public libraries to provide residents with free personal finance workshops.
GreenPath has scheduled more than 30 programs at libraries in six states (New York, Florida, Wisconsin, Georgia, Michigan, andTexas) in April, May and June. This initiative will provide consumers with reliable, unbiased financial information and tools at convenient public library locations.
"At GreenPath, we think it is vital to go into the communities we serve to provide personal finance programs," said GreenPath President and CEO Jane McNamara. "These free library programs are another way we can help people better understand budgeting, credit reports, identity theft prevention, and more."
