Hudson River Housing is urging consumers to test their financial knowledge by enrolling in a free financial education course on Sat., Oct. 26 at Rhinebeck Town Hall.
“Financial education is a critical need for consumers and for Dutchess County,” said Ed Murphy, Executive Director at Hudson River Housing, in a news release. “Being financially fit is the key to building wealth, regardless of income. For Dutchess County families, financial education can continue to promote stronger and more stable neighborhoods.”
The course, “Financial Fitness,” teaches consumers better money management skills to help decrease debt and increase resources. The three-hour course, from 9am – 12pm, covers budgeting, reviewing and understanding credit reports, as well as other financial topics, and is supplemented with a one-on-one follow-up session where participants meet with a housing counselor to review their personal budget and financial goals. It is partly funded by Dutchess County.
Hudson River Housing representatives will also be on hand to discuss Rhinebeck’s Workforce Housing Program, which features specially priced units in the Rhinebeck Gardens development that are for sale to eligible homebuyers.
