Economic Inclusion

Last Updated: April 9, 2024
Economic Inclusion Four Opportunity Areas

The FDIC promotes a state in which all U.S. households can establish, sustain, and benefit from banking relationships to create a strong financial foundation, manage their day-to-day finances, build wealth, and live in communities strengthened by bank lending, services, and investments.

Our work is guided by the Economic Inclusion Strategic Plan (the Plan) which builds on existing, successful programs like Money Smart, Get Banked, and regional community development initiatives. The Plan incorporates financial education across all opportunity areas as fundamental to successful utilization of financial products and services.
