America Saves Week

America Saves Week 2022 
Building Financial Resilience

America Saves Week - February 21, 2022 - February 25, 2022 - Proud Participant

America Saves Week is an annual celebration and call to action for Americans to commit to saving successfully. Since the onset of COVID-19 in America millions of Americans have experienced a loss of income — so what better time to take this week to get a clear view of your finances, set your financial goals, and make a plan to achieve them?

Through the support of over 1700 organizations, the initiative encourages local communities, families and individuals to examine their finances and rethink their saving behaviors. It all happens with the America Saves pledge, allowing savers to set a goal, and make a plan to achieve better financial stability.

America Saves Week is February 21 - 25, 2022. During the week, the Office of Financial Empowerment and Education (OFEE) share with residents and employees of the District a series of events and activities to promote saving and financial resiliency. See below for resources, activities, videos, and events.
