Yes. The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago started a similar program nine years ago. It has grown exponentially, now reaching thousands of consumers every year with education that shows them how to better manage their financials and navigate in challenging financial times. Last year, Chicago held more than 500 events and activities serving over 225,000 consumers.
Multiple communities have taken this model and implemented it in their city. Based on the success and experience from other areas of our country, we are confident that using their best practices will lead to success in Jacksonville.
