The Town of New Milford is hosting a free Financial Education class series. Mayor Pete Bass says the initiative is part of an overall response to issues raised the the community with the Social Services team. He says one of the major factors in creating economic mobility and stability is understanding personal finance, including building assets. The 18 week course, sponsored by the United Way of Western Connecticut, starts on August 2nd. It will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays 6pm to 7. Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion and a monetary incentive from the Untied Way savings program when the course is completed. New Milord residents can register by emailing SocialServices@newmilford.org. It's open to everyone from teens to seniors who are looking to build savings, spend wisely, and invest with confidence.
