$10,000 Grant from Citizens Targets Financial Fitness
The Citizens Bank Foundation is granting $10,000 to the Champlain Housing Trust in Burlington, Vermont, to develop a financial fitness counseling program for renters. The organization hopes that this program will help prevent future issues with delinquency and foreclosures, believing many of these issues can be solved through improved financial literacy. The program will focus on improving credit and financial capability.
