Today we’re announcing an opportunity to participate in the CFPB’s Your Money, Your Goals 2018 cohort. Your Money, Your Goals is a suite of financial empowerment tools and resources that individuals and organizations can use to help the people they serve manage their money and work toward their goals. Each year, we identify a small number of committed organizations and offer them more intensive support with their consumer financial empowerment efforts.
We are looking for approximately 40 organizations from across the country that are interested in using the Your Money, Your Goals toolkit, issue-focused booklets, and companion guides to help build the financial well-being of the people they serve. We are interested in working with organizations that serve economically vulnerable populations. These may include public and private social service, faith-based, legal aid, volunteer, and organizations that train workers.
Members of the Your Money, Your Goals 2018 cohort will receive training, materials, and technical assistance, including support for your organization as it develops and executes its Your Money, Your Goals implementation plan.
Members of past cohorts have used innovative approaches to implement Your Money, Your Goals training, tailoring it to their structure, mission, services, and the needs of the people they serve. They have also joined with other local and regional organizations to develop new partnerships and collaborations. .
If you think your program would be a good fit, complete the application and send it along with the requested attachments to YourMoneyYourGoals@cfpb.gov by Oct. 6, 2017, with the subject line “Your Money, Your Goals 2018.”
