Since 2004, April has been designated by congress as “Financial Literacy Month” to “raise public awareness about the importance of personal financial education in the United States – and the serious consequences that may result from a lack of understanding about personal finances.” In response, educators, non-profit groups, and government agencies have developed a variety of resources that help educate individuals of all ages and families of all sizes improve their financial knowledge. Of course, personal finance is an important topic year-around, so here are some great sites to check out to help you take control of your money.
