Washtenaw County Selected to Provide Free Financial Counseling for Low-Income Residents

Washtenaw County was recently awarded the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund (CFE) and selected to provide free financial services to low-income residents as public service. United Way will partner with the Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development in providing these services through our free financial coaching program.

The CFE works to improve the financial stability of low-to-moderate income households and embed programs through local governments.

“The United Way of Washtenaw County is a proud partner with Washtenaw County in this work to provide financial coaching to people who need our help,” says Pam Smith, President and CEO of United Way. "More than 1 in 3 people in Washtenaw county struggle to afford basic cost of living expenses and having budgeting, credit repair and money management education opportunities available is imperative to help our county thrive.”
