Policy and Advocacy

NEFE provides guidance on financial education policy at the state and federal levels using an effectiveness lens centered on research and historical data. We do this by driving the conversation, convening thought leaders and amplifying research.

Stay up-to-date with the latest developments in K-12 financial education legislation across all 50 state legislatures, D.C and U.S. Congress with NEFE’s 2024 interactive policy map.

Convening thought leaders on important issues

NEFE hosted “Financial Literacy Day on the Hill” in Washington, D.C. with the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy.

The event returned to being in-person for the first time since 2019, and brought together a diverse group of advocates, educators and policymakers to champion financial education and celebrate efforts.
