When & Where
Office of Financial Inclusion and Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund
The Office of Financial Inclusion is housed within the Chicago City Treasurer's Office and was created to advance the cause of financial inclusion in Chicago. OFI works with community organizations and financial institutions to develop programs and tools that help Chicagoans build savings and credit history, access save financial products and services, and become empowered to take control of their finances.
The CFE Fund's mission is to leverage municipal engagement to improve the financial stability of low and moderate income households by embedding financial empowerment strategies into local government infrastructure. The Fund works with mayoral administrations and those interested in supporting them to actually implement innovative programs and policies -- and measures its success accordingly.
