Financial Empowerment Training: Behind on Bills

June 27, 2017

About this event

Social service and labor organizations often work to integrate financial empowerment into services for low- and moderate-income families. From emergency assistance programs, long-term case management or supporting the workforce, they understand the clients' need for accurate information.

As a follow-up to the Your Money, Your Goals training, the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and the United Way of Greater Kansas City invite you to this two-and-a-half-hour training, Behind on Bills.

Behind on Bills is a compact resource with eight tools targeted at tracking income and expenses and managing bills. Developed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the tools were created to be photocopied and used in one-on-one meetings and conversations with clients.
