Iowa Financial Literacy Academy
Why Financial Literacy?
Financial literacy is about empowering smart choices
Financial literacy is more than learning how to save, invest, or apply for a credit card - it involves acquiring a set of skills that help you make informed decisions in the context of our ever-changing world.  

It's about gaining an understanding of how even daily decisions can impact your overall financial health.  And it can help you avoid common pitfalls and prepare you for a successful financial future.
