April is Financial Literacy Month, and the Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission is offering free online educational modules to help Tennesseans during the coronavirus pandemic.
The commission has launched the Financial Empowerment Resource Library that includes a web-based adult education tool containing 18 online modules covering financial topics such as budgeting, building an emergency savings, credit scores and reports, home ownership, checking accounts and retirement, according to a news release.
School-age children can participate in the Vault - Understanding Money program, a fun and educational game that teaches students in grades 3-8 how to make responsible money choices, the release states.
"As we have gone into communities across the state, we have been asked to provide financial education for adults as well as students," said David H. Lillard Jr., state treasurer, in a statement. "We believe the Financial Empowerment Resource Library gives Tennesseans of all ages tools needed to make more sound financial decisions. We encourage all Tennesseans to make use of these free resources during this unique time when we're spending most of our time at home."
