A 15-thousand dollar grant was recently awarded to the City of Gary. Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson accepted the Dollarwise Innovation Grant during Friday's US Conference of Mayors meeting, which will be used to implement family and youth financial literacy through the City's Youth Service Bureau, as well as financial education in their afterschool, springbreak and summer programs. Youth Service Bureau Director Ken Patrick Berry says they also want to partner with local libraries and the Gary Housing Authority to have Mobile Financial Literacy Labs travel throughout the city so as many youth and their families as possible have access to this information.
