ILLINOIS, April 8 – CHICAGO -April is National Financial Literacy Month and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago’s virtual Money Smart Week® is April 9-16, 2022, offering multiple free opportunities for financial education. The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), the state’s college access and financial aid agency, is participating in Money Smart Week® by  offering free resources and tools to help students and families improve financial literacy, and by encouraging and supporting students in completing a financial aid application.
“Particularly after the financial challenges of the last two years resulting from the pandemic, it’s increasingly important to provide opportunities for everyone to improve their financial literacy and to learn to better manage finances,” said ISAC Executive Director Eric Zarnikow. “One role that ISAC plays is to help provide students and families with the objective and accurate information they need to make well-informed decisions about education after high school. That includes ensuring that students know what financial aid is available to them. By completing a financial aid application like the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®), students may be surprised to learn there are more educational options available to them than they would have considered financially possible.”    See the list of events, resources, and assistance available to support financial literacy and college planning:
