Kansas City Alliance for Economic Inclusion
The Kansas City Alliance for Economic Inclusion (AEI) consists of 560 individuals representing 275 organizations in a broad-based coalition of financial institutions, community-based organizations, businesses, schools and other partners in several markets across the Kansas City metro area. AEI focuses on bringing unbanked and underserved populations into the financial mainstream with an emphasis in creating financial resiliency for low- and moderate-income families in Metropolitan Kansas City.
Kansas City AEI seeks to expand basic retail financial service usage such as savings accounts, affordable remittance products, small-dollar loan programs, targeted financial education programs, alternative delivery channels and other asset-building programs. To further achieve AEI goals of helping the low- and moderate-income community, Kansas City AEI is working to increase banking services for minority and immigrant communities.The Kansas City AEI supports economic inclusion initiatives with a large and diverse network of community leaders. Financial education classes and events can be found on our Money Smart KC website (www.moneysmartkc.org). With over 700 classes and events in 2019, its financial education calendar is one of the largest of any major city in the nation.
