FLI LOGO Webpage

The goal of the Tifton Financial Literacy Initiative is to help solve challenges related to poverty, low homeownership rates and other issues by implementing a comprehensive financial literacy initiative through which every resident of Tifton can participate. It strives to better equip a population to make good decisions on credit and better position assets and resources that are effective and productive, resulting in significant personal, household-level, small business and community-wide impact. The initiative complements Launch Tifton, the city’s plan to create and promote housing options for residents.
