Program Description:

Norwalk Community College in Connecticut operates the Family Economic $ecurity Program (FE$P) in partnership with community foundations. FE$P started its work with a pilot, serving small cohorts of students with children to help them meet their personal, career, financial and academic goals through direct financial support and intensive individualized coaching. Based on the research from the pilot, the college now intends to institutionalize the best practices to serve all students with children. Students will continue to receive specialized scholarships, free financial education, achievement coaching and family friendly activities. An online resource – Cash Course – is available to help with budgeting and planning.
