4th Round: CalMoneySmart Grants Support Fin. Education

The California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI) recently announced it has begun accepting applications for CalMoneySmart grants to support financial education and empowerment programs for unbanked and underbanked consumers across the state.

This is the fourth year of grant funding. Last year, the program awarded nearly $2 million to twelve nonprofit organizations serving 27 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 26, 2023. The DFPI expects to announce the 2023-24 grantees in August.

Information for prospective CalMoneySmart applicants and a link to application can be found here.
