Pa. Foundation Grant Helps Disabled With Money Management
HARRISBURG, Pa. (6/28/13)--The Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation has teamed with the Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF) and the Widener University School of Business Administration to develop a specialized guide to money management for people with disabilities.

The guide, Cents and Sensibility, is available in booklet and PDF format through the PATF, according to the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association's Life is a Highway (June 27).  The foundation provided a $10,000 grant to help publish the booklet and said it is the first publication of its kind in the U.S.

"This segment of the population often gets overlooked," said Joe Wambach, foundation executive director, "and this booklet will enable people with disabilities to have a better understanding of smart ways to save money without jeopardizing their government benefits."
