April Is Financial Literacy Month

Did you know that April is officially "National Financial Literacy Month"

It's not often we get to quote the President of the United States on our home ownership blog, but in his press release on the announcement about Financial Literacy Month, the President had this to say:

While our Government has a critical role to play in protecting consumers and promoting financial literacy, we are each responsible for understanding basic concepts: how to balance a checkbook, save for a child's education, steer clear of deceptive financial products and practices, plan for retirement, and avoid accumulating excessive debts. [Emphasis Added]


I call upon all Americans to observe this month with programs and activities to improve their understanding of financial principles and practices.

Looking for 'programs and activities' to help you understand the financial concepts necessary for successful homeownership?  Perhaps you are struggling with your mortgage payment or trying to balance all your financial obligations?  The MN Home Ownership Center's website is a great resource!  Visit our site today.
