DENVER (CBS4) – The city of Denver is making it easier for people to get financial counseling.

Mayor Michael Hancock on Monday announced the opening of the first of seven new Financial Empowerment Centers. They will provide free one-on-one professional services to low-income residents.

Denver is one of five U.S. cities opening Financial Empowerment Centers after receiving a $1.9 million grant from the Cities for Financial Empowerment (CFE) Fund.

“We are committed to providing a high quality of life for all our residents in part by supplying tools that will help them to plan smart and succeed,” Hancock said. “The seven new centers will provide thousands of Denverites with customized counseling aimed at achieving long-term financial security.”

The Office of Strategic Partnerships and local nonprofit mpowered will manage the grant.
