The goal of the New Jersey Coalition for Financial Education (NJCFE) is to improve the personal financial literacy of New Jersey’s citizens by promoting the teaching of personal finance to people of all ages. The Coalition believes that all citizens of New Jersey must have the financial literacy necessary to make informed financial decisions.
The Coalition meets regularly in the Central New Jersey region and consists of over 500 members and representatives of government agencies, schools, businesses, and nonprofit organizations that provide financial education and related services. The Coalition is a nonprofit operated by an elected board of directors and executive director.
Join NJCFE on Wednesday, June 15th at 4:00 pm for Samantha Benson and Andre' Maglione's webinar: "Financial Aid/FAFSA." This webinar will provide a detailed overview of the New Jersey State grants and scholarships administered by the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA). Participants will get to see exactly where students need to go to access their award amounts, find out what documents they need to submit, how to submit them and reasons for ineligibility.
