About NFEC


Increase the Awareness of the need for adequate personal finance skills in Native communities, Build the Capacity of Native governments and organizations to provide financial education; and support each other’s efforts to promote financial management skills through Information Sharing and Collaboration.

The Native Financial Education Coalition (NFEC) is a group of local, regional and national organizations and government agencies working together to achieve its common goal of promoting financial capability in Native communities. Started by the U.S. Department of Treasury in 2000, the now independent Native Financial Coalition seeks to exchange information, forge partnership, develop and implement strategies to institutionalize outreach and training, and identify gaps in information about financial education needs of American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiians.
