City Survey of Local Financial Inclusion Efforts

Municipal leaders and their community partners can play important roles in expanding residents’ access to financial services and assisting them in achieving greater financial stability.

The National League of Cities, through its Institute for Youth, Education, and Families is conducting a survey to identify financial stability or financial inclusion efforts taking place in communities around the country.

Financial inclusion refers to access to quality, affordable financial services in a convenient manner and with dignity for the customer. Financial inclusion can also advance or be strengthened by related efforts that empower low-income residents to take advantage of available benefits and tax credits, manage money more effectively and build financial assets to increase their financial stability.
