Financial Empowerment

"Financial empowerment is the ability and confidence of individuals and communities to make positive financial decisions that promote their long-term financial stability and financial well-being."

National Disability Institute

With this in mind, the HFEC created this resource for all Hawai’i families to use: Education A College Prep Savings Guide for Families with Students in Grades 7-12.

Use this Financial Literacy Toolkit with your ʻohana to create a savings plan for your ʻohana’s college education goals. You’ll find helpful cost information about the ACT and SAT, learn about how Federal Financial Aid can help you pay for college, and different money savings strategies you can use.
