The Community Impact Webinar Series will address other timely financial topics later this year. In November, the series will look at budgeting, saving and building credit. Participants will get tips on how to set up a budget and stick to it to achieve their financial goals, along with what they need to do to establish or repair credit. In December, the series will look at the topic of refinancing and financial stability. Participants will learn the options available to them when it comes to reducing their rates, loan terms and more. Additional information can be found here.
