You are Invited to Design and Deliver a Matched-Savings Program

“Without an income people can’t get by, but without assets they can’t get ahead” – Ray Boshara
Momentum, The City of Calgary and the Financial Futures Collaborative invite eligible agencies to apply for training, support, and funding to design a Matched Savings Program for participants living on a low income. Promoting both savings and the accumulation of assets among low-income families is an effective way to reduce poverty, social exclusion, and income inequality. This invitation is specifically for non-profit agencies with experience delivering financial literacy programs, and a commitment to the financial empowerment of all Calgarians. There is no cost to participate in the training. Selected agencies will be provided with the funds to cover administrative costs and matched savings for participants. Two agencies will be selected this year.
For further details please contact Courtney Hare chare@momentum.org or 403 204 6180.  The deadline to apply is 4:30pm, Friday, April 24, 2015.
