Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise Hosts Money School 720

Friday, July 5, 2019

Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise will be hosting Money School 720 on Saturday, July 20, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at CNE’s offices in downtown Chattanooga. Money School 720 is a two-part financial education workshop that focuses on credit literacy and ways a good credit score can work.

The workshop is free for everyone, and the first 50 attendees will receive a complete credit report at no charge (a $27 value). 

Money School 720 is a continuation of CNE’s annual day-long Money School event that takes place each April. Credit and credit scores are always popular topics each year, and this workshop will serve as an additional opportunity for community members to learn more about credit and how they can make it work for them.

The goal of Money School 720 is to help Chattanoogans improve their understanding of credit, so they feel confident to make informed choices and take action to improve their present and long-term financial well-being, said officials.

“The cornerstone for a strong community is stable families, and a key component of family stability is financial literacy and money management skills,” says Martina Guilfoil, president and CEO of CNE. “Understanding and improving one’s credit score allows that stability to take place.”

Money School 720 will be divided into two parts. Part one, “What does 720 mean?” will discuss credit score ranges, pitfalls of bad credit, plus building and maintaining good credit and how it can work for you. Part two, “Credit and Buying a Home” will focus on how credit is used as part of the homebuying process and the programs that CNE offers to help potential homeowners.

CNE’s offices are at 1500 Chestnut St., Suite 102. For more information about Money School 720 or to register, visit www.MoneySchoolCHA.org or call 756-6201. #720on720.
