CFPB Director Discusses FLEC Collaboration: State Engagement Project

CFPB Director Richard Cordray discussed the State Engagement Project—a project designed to gather input from state policymakers on resources and information that will be helpful for states to consider when determining the best way to incorporate youth financial education into their programs—at a Financial Literacy and Education Commission field hearing. The meeting focused on the research intended to support youth financial education. Director Cordray said:

We know that efforts to integrate financial education into K-12 education have faced significant hurdles—hurdles that we must surmount…It thus is critical that we work well and closely with our state and local partners to expand access to financial education for America’s youth.

The CFPB is collaborating with FLEC, the Office of Personnel Management and the Department of Labor in an effort to improve financial capability of Americans by promoting and encouraging opportunities to incorporate financial education in schools, workplaces and communities.
