Financial Literacy Month
National Financial Literacy month is recognized each year in April to raise public awareness of the importance of financial literacy and maintaining smart money management habits.
Financial Literacy Month evolved from Youth Financial Literacy Day, introduced by the National Endowment for Financial Education. The United States Senate passed a resolution in 2003 officially designating April as Financial Literacy Month. President Obama made a proclamation in March highlighting the importance of being financially capable and declaring the month of April as National Financial Capability Month.
