Community Action Agency is excited to announce their upcoming Show Me the Money Day event in Jackson. This FREE event, scheduled for April 18, 2024 is designed to provide community members with access to essential financial products, community resources, workshops, and an enjoyable experience for all ages.

Show Me the Money Day events are hosted by Community Economic Development Association of Michigan (CEDAM) members each year. The events promote opportunities to save, increase income, and build assets — like local free tax preparation services. CEDAM members host these events annually across Michigan from January to June, bolstering a statewide movement to remove economic barriers and advance financial empowerment.

In 2023, Show Me the Money Day events reached an impressive 1,907 Michigan residents. Notably, 37% of attendees came from households with incomes under $30,000, demonstrating the event’s accessibility to diverse socioeconomic groups. Survey results revealed that an overwhelming 80% of participants felt more hopeful about their financial future after attending Show Me the Money Day.

Event Highlights:

– Free and low-cost financial products

– Community resources and information

– Engaging financial workshops and Home Heating Credit information

– Fun and interactive activities for all ages
