Governor Sununu proclaims April "Financial Empowerment Month" in New Hampshire

The New Hampshire Banking Department celebrates Financial Empowerment Month by compiling an array of resources for consumers to become more informed about their overall financial well-being

CONCORD, NH  – New Hampshire Governor Christopher T. Sununu has proclaimed April of 2024 to be “Financial Empowerment Month” in New Hampshire. This proclamation expands on the annual Financial Literacy Month traditionally recognized in April of each year. 
    The New Hampshire Banking Department is celebrating Financial Empowerment Month with initiatives to help consumers become more educated about their personal finances. The Department has created its own materials in addition to compiling resources from around the country on numerous subjects that will help consumers with topics such as budgeting, paying down debt, buying a home or car, tracking credit card scores, avoiding scams and fraud, navigating digital currency, understanding loans, mortgages, escrow and more.
    “Financial literacy forms the bedrock for many of life’s major events: buying a house or a car, paying for college, and planning for retirement. Financially literate people are generally less vulnerable to fraud and financial scams,” said New Hampshire Banking Department Commissioner Emelia Galdieri. “All year long, and especially during Financial Empowerment Month, the Banking Department recognizes the need for increased education and outreach on this important topic.”
    The Financial Empowerment Month resources are located on the Banking Department’s website at and will be available year-round. These resources can be accessed from the Banking Department home page by clicking the “Consumer Assistance” tab on the main navigation bar and selecting the appropriate topics.
