Taking It To the Next Level—ARC Launches Financial Literacy Tool to Mark Financial Literacy Month

The Alliance for Responsible Consumer Legal Funding (ARC) is proud to announce the launch of a new website called Financially Fit in honor of National Financial Literacy Month, which is observed in April every year. Financially Fit a user-friendly financial resource site for people who are facing a financial crisis after an accident or injury, or who simply want to move toward long-term financial wellness.

To develop the site, we partnered with our ARC member companies and Money Management International (MMI), a well-respected 501 (c)(3) non-profit credit counseling service that has been serving consumers since 1958. Members of our Advisory Council were also integral to the site’s development.

ARC is committed to promoting practices and regulations that lead to consumer’s informed decisions about their finances.

We believe that informed decisions start with financial education.

The site entered beta testing on December 1, 2016. Since then it’s garnered over 3,000 visits and more than 650 people have called MMI for free 1-on-1 budget counseling through the site.

We are excited to share this resource, to take our engagement with consumers to the next level. We hope that it will provide the tools necessary to get visitors on the path to financial health.
