Boards must be aware of the following.

As set forth in Texas Labor Code §302.0027, TWC and Boards must ensure that all workforce development programs offered in the state include training in financial literacy. 

Boards may use the Money Smart curriculum—available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese—to ensure that financial literacy training is available to Workforce Solutions office customers. 

Information on the Money Smart curriculum, including instructions on how to order free copies, is available through the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) website, Money Smart – A Financial Education Program..

Check your local policies to learn more about the financial literacy programs in your workforce area.
