The Community Development Corporation of Brownsville (CDCB) will increase access to its comprehensive financial capability services in Brownsville by partnering with two local employers to offer services, including housing counseling, financial literacy education, and VITA tax preparation, to employees at each worksite. CDCB will also enhance its Financial and Physical Health and Wealth (FPHW) metrics and data analysis methodology to develop a client-facing portal where individuals can independently monitor their FPHW metrics and action plans. CDCB’s programming helps families and communities build wealth by addressing the root cause of chronic financial insecurity and helps low-income families achieve stable homeownership.
