This brief shares lessons and strategies from three community action agencies (CAAs) that are integrating financial capability services into social service programs. Financial capability is the capacity—based on knowledge, skills, and access—to manage financial resources effectively. The brief is organized into three sections: selecting financial capability services, deciding who will provide the selected financial capability services, and identifying the right points in time to integrate financial capability services. The brief was produced by Prosperity Now under contract to the Office of Community Services in the Administration for Children and Families, a division of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
