1. April is National Financial Literacy Month - Check out Practical Money Skills for Life →

    The language of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) includes, “assure their [citizens with disabilities] full participation, independent living and economic self-sufficiency.”

    National Disability Institute is the first national non-profit dedicated exclusively to building a better economic future for people with disabilities. An important component of economic empowerment is knowledge, which is why we are excited to celebrate National Financial Literacy Month!  

    Each Tuesday in April, we will share with you a useful resource designed to inform you about spending, saving, and earning. Check back each week for a new tool!

    Practical Money Skills for Life contains a set of tools and resources to improve financial literacy at home, at work and/or at school. The site contains practical solutions and resources for teaching people the importance of financial literacy in all settings. Examples of tools include lesson plans for teachers, calculators for monthly budgets, mortgages, saving, and auto loans. Perhaps the greatest tool the site offers though is several “games” to teach financial fitness, among them are “Financial Football” and “Smart Money Quiz Show”.
