Thanks to a grant from State Farm, a local organization is aiming to provide financial literacy opportunities to the community.
DeWitt County Habitat For Humanity received around $5000 to provide financial literacy education to their homeowners and the community. Bob Cox says they got high marks for how well written their grant was.
Classes could begin as early as June and Cox indicates they will start with the families they have built homes for. He explains once all their homeowners have taken the course, they will open it up to the community.
According to Cox, the grant will allow Habitat to purchase all the materials for the course, making it a free opportunity. And for them to purchase a television for the video curriculum.
The education will follow the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace curriculum.
