Grant supports classes in money management

Citizens Bank is now accepting grant applications from nonprofit agencies for financial literacy services that help consumers better manage their money. Eligible financial literacy services include basics of banking and asset building, budgeting, homeownership counseling, foreclosure prevention, credit management and repair programs and financial management for small businesses.

In 2017, Citizens awarded 80 nonprofit organizations more than $1.4 million in contributions through its Citizens Helping Citizens Manage Money program. The grants are part of Citizens Bank's ongoing commitment to give people the confidence and tools they need to budget, save, invest and be fiscally healthy.

To be considered for funding, eligible nonprofits in the communities served by Citizens Bank should submit an online application by Dec. 29. Recipients will be announced in April 2018.
