For the month of April, National Disability Institute (NDI) will join with nonprofits, financial institutions, businesses, government agencies and individuals across the country to recognize National Financial Capability Month.
Financial Capability Month (also commonly referred to as Financial Literacy Month) is a time for all Americans to increase their knowledge of personal finances and to encourage others to do the same.
In his Presidential Proclamation declaring April 2016 to be Financial Capability Month, President Obama called upon “all Americans to observe this month with programs and activities to improve their understanding of financial principles and practices.” He elaborated, “This month, let us encourage informed financial decisions and promote resources that help the American people make them, and let us reaffirm our belief in the idea that opportunity should be within reach for all who are willing to work for it.” Read the complete Presidential Proclamation
As the nation’s preeminent nonprofit dedicated to championing economic empowerment for all Americans with disabilities, NDI will engage in a month-long initiative to help individuals across the spectrum of disability begin building a better and more secure financial future for themselves and their families.
In addition to the financial wellness resources provided on the NDI website, we will share blogs and social media posts containing financial advice from NDI staff members and partner organizations. Please join in the conversation by engaging with NDI on Facebook: RealEconImpact or on Twitter: @RealEconImpact and using the hashtag #FLM2016 or #NDIFinanceTips.
