ICBA Joins FDIC's Money Smart Alliance Program
ICBA became the newest member of the FDIC's Money Smart Alliance Program, which is designed to increase financial literacy in communities where it is most needed. The program uses the FDIC's Money Smart financial education curriculum to teach adults the basics of money management.
FDIC Chairman Don Powell and ICBA President and CEO Ken Guenther signed a Memorandum of Understanding that calls for the ICBA to distribute 1,000 copies of the Money Smart curriculum to its members across the country. "I am delighted that the ICBA has joined the Money Smart Alliance Program," said Chairman Powell. "I think of Money Smart as a tool kit that can help people begin building a more secure financial future for themselves within the framework of traditional banking relationships."
