Consumer Action Financial Empowerment Resource Sheet

Posted by on September 10, 2012

Years after the financial crisis began, consumers are still struggling to make ends meet. More than ever, families need to take advantage of available assistance as a way to keep much-needed dollars in their pockets.

Consumer Action’s new Financial Empowerment Resource Sheet, available in English and Spanish, provides information about money-saving resources ranging from food assistance programs and utility subsidies to discounted prescription sources and free or low-cost health care providers. This new resource, which was peer-reviewed by staff members from Feeding America-affiliated food banks across the country, is designed to help your clients—and all consumers—close the gap between what they need and what they can afford.


Created with support from Bank of America, the Financial Empowerment Resource Sheet can be downloaded for free at the Consumer Action website. While you’re at the site, check out our library of free, multilingual consumer and financial education training materials, all designed to help you empower your clients and improve their economic well being. Learn more about our outreach activities and training events, too.
