Reps. Beatty, Stivers Lead Bipartisan Charge on Financial Literacy

April is Financial Literacy Month

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This April, countless Americans, organizations, nonprofits and other stakeholders are marking Financial Literacy Month by raising awareness on the importance of financial literacy and promoting tools and resources to help more individuals and families develop and maintain healthy financial habits. As co-chairs of the House Financial and Economic Literacy Caucus, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) and U.S. Congressman Steve Stivers (OH-15) are working hard in Congress to ensure even more Americans can build a brighter financial future.

Coinciding with the month-long initiative, Beatty and Stivers recently introduced a resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives, H.Res. 275, to recognize April as ‘Financial Literacy Month.’

“Every day, Americans are faced with important financial decisions that have far-reaching effects on their lives, their families, and financial future. That is why promoting financial and economic literacy is so important,” Beatty said. “Financial literacy is a lifelong journey, and every American needs to understand the basic principles of planning, saving, and investing for the future.” Beatty continued, “In that spirit, I am proud to work with Congressman Stivers, the Jump$tart Coalition and many others—before, during, and after Financial Literacy Month—to equip Americans of all ages with the much-needed tools, skills, and know-how to achieve financial independence.”  

“Whether it’s a recent college graduate trying to understand student loans, a newlywed couple purchasing their first home, or a retiree planning for the next chapter, financial literacy is extremely important at every stage in life,” Stivers said. “I’m proud to work with Congresswoman Beatty and the Jump$tart coalition to promote financial literacy across the country, and to introduce this resolution.”

Throughout the month of April, Beatty and Stivers will be promoting Financial Literacy Month, so please be sure to visit their Facebook and Twitter to see, hear and learn the latest.  Also, do not forget to join the conversation online by using #FLM2019, and get more information on the House Financial and Economic Literacy Caucus by visiting https://financialandeconomicliteracycaucus-stivers.house.gov/.
