Spring is just around the corner and with it brings thoughts of cleaning, dusting, and getting the house ready for the warmer weather. Spring is also a great time for many to spruce up their financial housex. Now that the holidays are but a memory, many consumers are deeper in debt than when they started the Christmas season.

Two of these grants support nonprofits offering financial education programming for individuals in underserved communities. The third focuses more on research.
