Having the money conversation with individuals transitioning from incarceration? 

New resources from CFPB...

Are you having money conversations with the justice-involved individuals you serve? The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a U.S. government agency that makes sure banks, lenders, and other financial companies treat you fairly, developed Your Money, Your Goals toolkit to help front line staff and volunteers have that conversation.  And now they bring you a companion guide, Focus on Reentry, to help with financial challenges facing individuals pre- and post-reentry.  

Join Florida Prosperity Partnership and Mary Griffin with the Office of Financial Empowerment at the CFPB about the Focus on Reentry guide and the Office’s work to improve the financial lives of justice-involved individuals. The toolkit and Focus on reentry guide are available at Your Money Your Goals

The toolkit and guide help you help the people you serve  -

  • Prioritize money challenges and goals – should they pay down debt or focus on saving for a down payment on an apartment?
  • Understand their rights if they have criminal records in their background reports
  • Prioritize debt, including criminal justice debt
  • Order and fix credit reports
  • Know their rights when a debt collector contacts them
  • Avoid tricks and traps when choosing financial products
  • Decide whether a checking account is appropriate and understand what is needed to open one
