NAST had made a commitment to offer treasurers a pre-packaged comprehensive set of materials on how to commence a financial literacy program, seek financial support, and provide the basic materials necessary to promote and publicize the initiative. Here you will find Webinars and documents from state programs we hope you will find helpful as this project develops.
NAST President and Washington State Treasurer James McIntire appointed Rhode Island State Treasurer Seth Magaziner and Indiana State Treasurer Kelly Mitchell co-chairs of the NAST Financial Education and Empowerment Committee to fulfill this initiative.
A One-Stop Shop to Help Plan, Save, and Pay for College
Hartford, CT – A partnership of State agencies today launched CT Dollars & Sense, a new on-line portal that provides one convenient website for Connecticut students and parents to find out how to plan, save and pay for college.
CT Dollars & Sense, www.CTDollarsandSense.com,combines college planning and financial literacy information from five separate agencies: the Connecticut Higher Education Trust (CHET), the Connecticut Higher Education Supplemental Loan Authority (CHESLA), the Office of Higher Education, the Department of Banking, and the Department of Consumer Protection.
Students can get information on scholarships, loans, and college savings plans, and also learn how to budget their money or find internships. In addition, iGrad provides financial literacy information and resources on the site.
