Statewide Financial Literacy Program Launches

Governor Branstad today announced the launch of the Iowa Financial Literacy Program, an online program to teach Iowa students the core concepts of personal finance. The program is free to students, thanks to a federal grant and a public-private partnership between the College Student Aid Commission and many other organizations, banks, credit unions and companies.

“Financial education is becoming increasingly important, especially in today’s economy,” said Branstad. “By educating Iowa’s youth, they will be better prepared ot make important choices about finances in the future.”

Developed by EverFi, Inc., the online tool uses the latest in new media technology to teach, assess and certify students in grades 11 to 12 in more than 600 core concepts. It will be accessed at http://www.IHaveAPlanIowa.gov.
