The Lansing Financial Empowerment Center is a partnership of the City of Lansing and Cristo Rey Community Center. Our trained, professional financial counselors will sit down with you one-on-one to help you achieve your financial dreams and goals. We will help you create a budget, reduce money stress, improve your credit, pay down your debt, access affordable bank accounts, and save money for the future.
All counseling services, including credit report analysis, is free of charge. There are no income limits or residency requirements.
The Lansing Financial Empowerment Center was brought to our community in March 2013 by a 3-year grant from the Cities for Financial Empowerment (CFE) Fund with support from Bloomberg Philanthropies. Today, it is funded by the City's General Fund, federal Community Development Block Grant dollars, and contributions from local and national corporations and foundations.
