Financial Literacy Innovation Grant
The Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions (DFI), along with the Governor’s Council on Financial Literacy has created a fund for the purpose of promoting innovation in the teaching of personal financial literacy (PFL) in the classroom. Funds are being awarded through a competitive grant program to schools, partnering with communities, to support the implementation of the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for Personal Financial Literacy in order to improve financial literacy among youth. Funds provide an opportunity to help teachers bring new and creative programs and events into the classrooms or implement the adoption of a PFL graduation requirement in Wisconsin schools as a means to enhance the teaching and learning of financial literacy.
To be considered for this grant, eligible applicants must submit a completed application by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 1, 2018. Application instructions can be found in the application package linked below.
