Helping Floridians improve their financial knowledge and resilience
UF/IFAS Extension Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) agents are ready to help you and your family make the best financial decisions for your financial stability and wellbeing. Our mission is to provide free and accurate financial education to Floridians.
Based in local offices across the state, our agents are Accredited Financial Counselors through the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education (AFCPE) and in some cases, Housing and Urban Development.
Who can participate in financial Counseling?
Our program is open to those in need during the coronavirus pandemic, prioritizing those who are underserved and unable to utilize any other services. This may include rural communities, those with chronic illnesses or those struggling to make ends meet.
How we can help
We focus on helping you organize your finances and understand your options. Our counsellors help you think through how to prioritize bills, stretch food dollars or find alternatives to some of your current expenses. In addition, we can assist you with understanding your credit situation and credit report, establish a plan of action and learn how to follow your plan for success.
How does it work?
During the coronavirus pandemic, all efforts will be conducted virtually.
All financial guidance provided by UF/IFAS counsellors is unbiased and no products are endorsed or sold.
UF/IFAS Extension serves to provide the infrastructure for this program throughout the state of Florida, thanks to a gift from Bank of America.
