Description of the agency: 

The NFCC’s core mission is to support and promote a national agenda for financially responsible behavior and to build capacity for its members to deliver the highest quality financial education and counseling services. The NFCC accomplishes this mission through investments in outreach campaigns; developing educational and counseling training programs, materials, standards, and best practices; advocating on behalf of consumers for better credit solutions; and obtaining federal and private grant funding to support financial counseling.

The NFCC’s member agencies make up the nation’s largest and longest-serving network of non-profit credit and financial education counseling agencies. Our 80-plus member agencies deliver services from over 650 offices, with more than 2,000 Certified Financial Professionals serving consumers in communities across the country. All NFCC member agencies are 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organizations. Each year, NFCC member agencies provide counseling, education, and related services to millions of consumers.

NFCC-certified counselors take a holistic view of clients’ finances and assist them to manage their finances responsibly. Our members’ counselors work with each client – without regard for the client’s ability to pay – to bring their finances into focus, construct a budget and action plan that includes tackling their debt, and provide ongoing assistance as needed to reach their financial goals.
