The Summit will bring together members of the asset building community and the disability community in Southeastern Kentucky to build a framework on how the two communities can work together to develop programs that stimulate economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities. The Summit will be held from 9:30 AM to 3:15 PM Eastern Time at the Hazard Career Center, 412 Roy Campbell Drive.
The Summit will explore how to increase access to asset building tools by individuals with disabilities. Those tools include financial literacy training, credit counseling, individual development accounts, tax preparation assistance, low interest loan programs, among others services. Individuals with disabilities represent a largely untapped market for financial institutions. Services to this population provide an excellent opportunity for community reinvestment.
