FDIC Recognizes University of Wyoming Extension with Award

Written by on February 26, 2020

The University of Wyoming Extension has been nationally recognized for its work in expanding financial education.

The FDIC has chosen to recognize four institutions for their work to expand financial education and support healthy banking relationships as part of America Saves Week. Those institutions were the First Commonwealth Bank of Indiana, Pennsylvania, Haven Neighborhood Services of Los Angeles, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and the University of Wyoming Extension.

The Extension received the Creative Money Smart for Adults User of the Year, for its creation of the “Master Money Manager Coach” or M3C program to help community organizations across Wyoming enhance the money management skills of their clientele. To quote the FDIC’s website: “The M3C program supports social service organizations in their efforts to help financially at-risk individuals improve their financial situation.”

The M3C program was offered in the counties of Teton, Laramie, Campbell, and Natrona. As a result, 33 social service organizations and 51 people from five counties are ready and equipped to assist clients who need help managing money.
