FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RIVIERA BEACH, FLORIDA – City of Riviera Beach, Riviera Beach CRA, and Truist Bank Partnered Together for Virtual Financial Literacy Classes
The City of Riviera Beach, Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, and Truist Bank partnered together to create two virtual financial literacy class offerings to Riviera Beach residents. These classes were offered through Zoom at 11am and 6pm on each of the two weeks.
The class topics were “Setting Yourself Up for The Future” and “Understanding Credit and Debt.” Residents were able to learn more about bank account management, savings, retirement, credit, and debt. They were able to ask questions and get additional resources after the class, if needed.
Personal finance and budgeting are intimidating and is not always something people want to look at. We need to connect with our community, so they can learn to invest in themselves. The more we educate ourselves on finance the more likely our community will thrive. Our partnership with Truist Bank demonstrates our aligned interest in equipping our residents with the financial tools needed to create wealth for generations to come.
The Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency
The Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency is at the heart of dramatic transformations underway within the district. Formed in 1984 by the Riviera Beach City Council, the Riviera Beach CRA provides funding for a wide scope of projects that incentivize economic growth through business attraction and retention; finances and new and improved infrastructure for real estate projects; and generally works to expand the tax base by creating a welcoming environment that eliminates blight and improves the perception of safety in the area.
The Agency’s main mission is to guide the city’s redevelopment efforts. This includes making investments of public funds in key infrastructure improvement projects that have the capacity to act as a catalyst for additional private funding and development, create jobs and help to improve the quality of life for city residents.
