California DFPI Launches Fifth Round of CalMoneySmart Grants

This week, the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI) began accepting applications for CalMoneySmart grants to support financial education and empowerment programs for unbanked and underbanked consumers in the State of California.

Beginning this round, applicants may apply for funding for two consecutive fiscal years.

This is the fifth cycle of grant funding. Last year, the program awarded nearly $2 million to 15 nonprofit organizations serving 28 counties across the state.

Organizations that support at-risk individuals to achieve economic self-sufficiency and build wealth are encouraged to apply.

All CalMoneySmart applications must be submitted by May 06, 2023. The DFPI expects to announce the awards in July.
