MADISON, Wis.  (1/31/14)--The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) is now accepting applications for Biz Kid$ financial education grants.
 
"There is a need to improve the financial literacy skills of the youth in America and Biz Kid$ is the perfect vehicle to address that need," said Danielle Brown, NCUF director of development and donor relations.
 
"We are looking to fund innovative programs that improve the financial education of youth through the use of the Biz Kid$ program and encourage you to apply," she added.
 
Biz Kid$ financial education grants may be used to fund innovative programs that use the award-winning TV series and associated content to improve the financial education of youth.
 
The objective is to engage the credit union movement in using Biz Kid$ and its curriculum to build students financial literacy and economic education skills while increasing awareness and usage of Biz Kid$.
 
Credit unions, credit union service organizations, state credit union associations, state credit union foundations, and any other organizations owned or controlled by credit unions are eligible to apply. The deadline is March 31.
