Financial Literacy and Disaster Preparedness

Do you have your finances organized in case a disaster strikes your family, community or business?

FEMA, USDA/NIFA – Division of Family & Consumer Sciences, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Operation Hope are collaborating on a free webinar on financial preparedness for disasters and emergencies.

This webinar will focus on local tools, services and assistance available to individuals, faith-based and community-based leaders, private sector organizations and emergency managers. Presenters will provide information on how to incorporate financial preparedness tools into local disaster preparedness education efforts and how to get the community involved in an effort for communities to start preparing for emergencies early.

Attendees will learn more about tools and guidance that protects the consumer rights of disaster survivors. There will also be updates on new and revamped tools and resources to make being financial prepared easy, including new Ready.gov and MyMoney.gov web pages, an updated version of the Emergency Financial First Aid Kit and previews of additional financial preparedness tools under development.
