Program Description


Is your credit keeping you from the home, car, or job of your choice? In this session, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will:

  • Explain what a credit score is and how it changes.
  • Introduce key steps you can take to boost your credit score.

Leave the session with tools to help you monitor and address common issues in your credit report that could be unfairly impacting your score. This session will include links to the CFPB’s free publications and resources so you understand your rights.
