Watch Now: New Training Videos for Planning Your Financial Capability Integration Project

In 2015, CFED partnered with the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to publish Building Financial Capability: A Planning Guide for Integrated Services (“the Guide”) to help practitioners plan how to integrate financial capability into existing services. Since then, the Guide has become the go-to resource for practitioners who see the power of financial capability integration. Today, we are excited to announce the release of five short training videos that walk viewers through the Guide.
Building Financial Capability is an interactive resource to help community-based organizations develop a plan for integrating financial capability services into existing programs, such as housing, workforce development or Head Start. The new training videos provide instructions, tips and examples to make the most of the tools and resources in the Guide. Each video is shorter than six minutes so that direct service staff and key partners can get a quick overview of what the Guide is and how to use it. They’re also a great primer on what it means to integrate financial capability services for those who may be new to the concept.
In the first video in the series, Jeannie Chaffin, Director of ACF’s Office of Community Services, and Kate Griffin, Vice President for Programs at CFED, describe the importance of financial capability integration and provide an introduction to the Guide. In the next four videos, Kori Hattemer and Rita Bowen, two of the Guide’s co-authors, provide an overview of each section in the Guide and how to use it.
