The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Indiana Assets & Opportunity Network, Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority, and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Indianapolis will host Expanding Economic Stability Opportunities Forum on Tuesday, July 21, 2015. This forum will explore strategies for increasing financial resilience among low- and moderate-income families. The Center for Enterprise Development will share steps for successful integration of financial capabilities into social services. These services include financial education, credit building and counseling, access to safe and affordable financial products, and free tax preparation. 

Bankers will share examples of products that may be responsive to the needs of unbanked and underserved consumers, such as SAFE accounts, low-cost savings accounts, second chance accounts, check-cashing services, and small dollar loans. Community stakeholders will also have the opportunity to discuss local consumer financial capability needs and explore integration options.

This session is intended for bankers, community service managers and program design staff, foundations, and municipal community services staff. Space is limited and registration is required by July 14. Lunch will be provided. 

Date & Time: Tuesday, July 21, 2015 from 9am – 3pm
