My Town: Grand Haven offering free financial counseling through grant

GRAND HAVEN, Mich.—Residents of Grand Haven have a new place to go for free financial counseling.

The Community Economic Development Association of Michigan has awarded the city a $25,000 grant to provide one-on-one financial counseling by creating a Financial Empowerment Center. 

“CEDAM is excited to work with the City of Grand Haven, the Oakland County Treasurer’s Office and the City of Taylor to help residents create better financial stability through the assistance of free financial counseling,” said Megan Kursik, coordinator of the Michigan Communities for Financial Empowerment network at CEDAM. “The Financial Empowerment Centers in each community will target residents facing challenging financial times, helping consumers to reduce debt, improve credit and plan and save for their futures.”

The Grand Haven office began providing financial counseling July 1 at Neighborhood Housing Services, 20 N. Fifth Street. The service will be available Tuesdays through Thursdays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.   An open house and ribbon cutting ceremony for the Michigan Financial Empowerment Center program will take place Thursday, July 10, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
