The SCFLC will use grant funding to pay faculty and community educators to conduct periodic local outreach to the Northern New York community and provide seminars on a range of basic personal finance topics, including budgeting, family money skills, managing debt, smart purchasing and living decisions, taxes, and planning for, and financing, both higher education and retirement. Current SUNY Canton students in business related majors will receive specialized training to assist educators in providing these services to the community.

The SCFLC will also leverage SUNY Canton’s existing Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, its Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and its legal assistance partnership with the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York to help identify and serve the needs of individuals for financial education services.
