CDLI's Commitment During Financial Literacy Month

As April unfolds, so does Financial Literacy Month—a time dedicated to enhancing understanding

and awareness of financial matters. At CDLI (Community Development Long Island), we recognize the profound impact that financial literacy has on individuals, families, and communities. That's

why we're proud to champion financial education initiatives and empower individuals to navigate their financial futures with confidence.


The Importance of Financial Literacy


Financial literacy is the foundation of financial well-being. It encompasses the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to make informed financial decisions, manage resources effectively, and achieve financial goals. In today's complex financial landscape, where decisions about savings, credit, and homeownership, financial literacy is more crucial than ever.


CDLI's Dedication to Financial Literacy


At CDLI, we firmly believe that everyone deserves access to financial education and resources to build a brighter financial future. That's why we've made it a priority to offer comprehensive financial literacy programs tailored to the needs of our community. Our Financial Capabilities courses are designed to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills they need to make sound financial decisions and achieve financial stability.


Empowering Individuals Through Financial Capabilities Courses


Our Financial Capabilities courses cover a wide range of topics, including:

  1. Budgeting and Money Management: Learn how to create a budget, track expenses, and effectively manage your money to meet your financial goals.

  2. Credit Building and Repair: Understand the importance of credit, learn how to establish and maintain good credit, and explore strategies for credit repair and improvement.

  3. Saving for the Future: Discover the power of saving for the future, explore different saving options, and develop a personalized plan.
