This page summarizes KnowledgePlex content about Financial Literacy.

An important initiative in the affordable housing and community development field, financial literacy ensures that home buyers have the ability to make informed judgments and effective decisions about the use and management of money. Home buyers can realize their dreams by learning the financial skills necessary to maintain a family spending plan, use checking and savings accounts, build or repair a credit history, and apply for a loan.
