About the Program
The goal of the Financial Education Program is to increase the financial knowledge and skills of Mon Valley residents. By providing community workshops, Mon Valley residents are able to develop their financial knowledge and skills in areas such as budgeting, savings, credit, banking, and taxes.
In addition to community workshops, HSCC has also built partnerships with financial empowerment organizations such as the Pittsburgh Financial Empowerment Center, Mon Valley Initiative, Fund My Future, and United Way’s Free Tax Prep Coalition. Through these partnerships, HSCC is able to refer individuals to free one-on-one financial counseling sessions, homeownership resources, children’s saving account information, free tax preparation, and more.
HSCC has also developed a Financial Resource Guide which has a compiled resource list focused on budgeting, public benefits and services that can increase income or decrease expenses, training programs, financial organizations, and financial institutions.
This program is funded in whole or in part under the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) from the Federal Department of Health and Human Services under the administration of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of Community and Economic Development. Allegheny County Department of Human Services is the local agency which makes the CSBG funding award.
