NLC’s Economic Opportunity and Financial Empowerment team headed down to Atlanta last week for a National Municipal Financial Inclusion Summit. On September 27th, NLC convened 28 cities to learn about strategies to improve the financial lives of families.

Supported by MetLife Foundation, the Summit highlighted the accomplishments of eight cities participating in NLC’s two-year Financial Inclusion Systems and City Leadership (FISCL) project which helps cities to build city-wide, sustainable financial inclusion systems. The following day, representatives from half of the 28 cities attended an NLC peer learning meeting focused on starting or strengthening municipal Children’s Savings Accounts initiatives.

Below are select tweets from the Summit with the #FISCLSummit hashtag, take a look at what our staff and the summit attendees shared during the event!
