The financial capability of vulnerable populations has been identified as a key area of interest to the Community Development and Partnerships Directorate (CDPD) of HRSDC. In the fall of 2010, CDPD commissioned an intensive primary research survey to learn about the financial capability practice of leading community-based organizations, and to contribute to CDPD’s evidence base for developing policy options. Eight leaders in community-based financial capability programming shared extensive information about their funding, program design and delivery, promising practices, and partnerships.
