National Financial Literacy Month is recognized in the United States in April in an effort to highlight it’s importance and teach Americans how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits.
This year, the Native American Financial Services Association (NAFSA) is celebrating the benefits of financial literacy all month long!
Many people would like to be more engaged in their finances and financial decisions, but are unsure where and how to start. NAFSA’s comprehensive, concise, and easy-to-navigate Program helps users build a solid knowledge base to guide them for years to come.
There are numerous programs to participate in at the NAFSA portal here: https://nafsa.everfi-next.net
According to their site the program is designed to advocate for tribal sovereignty, promote responsible financial services, and provide better economic opportunity in Indian Country for the benefit of tribal communities. Lack of financial literacy and education is a major problem in the United States. We are proud to provide this content as a resource that encourages all people to take control of their finances and empowers them to understand how their finances work.
Here on our LDF-Holdings blog: Holdings Hints, we try to offer information and helpful advice to help raise financial literacy year round, we are excited to share the Native American Financial Services Association program with our readers.
