About CFPB and the Office of Financial Education
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) created the CFPB’s Office of Financial Education to develop and implement initiatives to educate and empower consumers to make better-informed financial decisions. To help do that, the CFPB has teamed up with local public libraries, library associations, state and federal agencies, and national financial education leaders to generate ongoing interest in financial education and develop bottom-up approaches to provide programs and build collections for libraries of all sizes and in all communities
