CFPB Seeks Public Feedback on Financial Education Programs

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau today issued a request for information seeking feedback on its consumer financial education programs. The request is the 11th in an ongoing series of RFIs designed to provide the CFPB with input on how to improve outcomes for both consumers and covered entities.

The public is invited to submit comments on the overall effectiveness of the CFPB’s financial education programs, which are one of the six primary functions of the bureau under the Dodd-Frank Act. Specifically, the bureau requested comments on how to improve existing programs and delivery approaches; how better to evaluate the bureau’s programs; and how to minimize duplication of programs offered by other federal agencies and non-government entities.
