Agency: Department of the Treasury
In 2003, Congress established the Financial Literacy and Education Commission (FLEC, or the Commission) through passage of the Financial Literacy and Education Improvement Act under Title V of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003. Congress designated the Department of the Treasury's Office of Financial Education to lend its expertise and provide primary support to the Commission, which is chaired by the Secretary of the Treasury. As directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which created the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (CFPB), the Director of the CFPB serves as the vice chair of the Commission. Congress charged the Commission to ``improve the financial literacy and education of persons in the United States through development of a national strategy to promote financial literacy and education.'' In 2011, the Commission released a national strategy entitled Promoting Financial Success in the United States: National Strategy for Financial Literacy. Additionally, the Commission hosts a national financial education Web site,, which provides Federal educational resources and the Commission's Research and Data Clearinghouse. The Commission is now planning to update to the national strategy to reflect changes within the last five years. On behalf of the Commission, the Department of the Treasury invites the public to comment on the Promoting Financial Success for All: National Strategy (National Strategy) Update. This update will be created by adding new text and edits to the original 2011 National Strategy, which can be found at Documents/NationalStrategyBook_12310%20(2).pdf.
