June 30th marks the conclusion of our Ware County Money Smart program. Money Smart begins with a series of 6 classes where participants learn about budgeting, checking and savings accounts, interest rates and other financial information that can impact them. Once the classes are completed, participants have the opportunity to earn up to $1000 in matching funds if they set up and contribute to a savings account. Participants also have access to monthly one-on-one meetings with CSI staff to help them develop ways to use what they’ve learned in the class.
