Treasurer Ball Announces Expansion of Kentucky’s Financial Empowerment Database

Treasurer Allison Ball announced the expansion of Kentucky’s Financial Empowerment Database on Monday, February 11, 2019. The Financial Empowerment Database, a first-of-its-kind resource for Kentuckians with over 100 financial literacy resources, will now include a seventh cultivation community focused on resources for state employees. Prior to this announcement, the Database was comprised of six ‚Äúcultivation communities‚ÄĚ or resource groups including: Aging Kentuckians, Emerging adults, Kentuckians with Disabilities, Low-Income Families, Student Strategies, and Veterans and Military Personnel. Treasurer Ball said she is always looking for ways to improve literacy in Kentucky and has heard from Kentuckians from across the state who are benefiting from the resources.
