Money 2000 - Money 2000 is a program that was conducted by Rutgers Cooperative Extension between 1996 and 2000 to increase the financial well-being of New Jersey residents. Almost 2,000 households enrolled and were encouraged to set a personal financial goal to increase savings and/or reduce debt. By January 2001, participants had collectively improved their net worth by more than $7 million.
Money Talk: Women's Financial Education Series - This curriculum, brought to you by Rutgers Cooperative Extension, focuses solely on the needs of women, since they have unique financial needs. For example, on average, they live longer than men and earn less. Many women also have "gaps" in their earnings history, due to family care-giving roles, which reduce their income at retirement.
Family Development and Resource Management Base Program - This base program helps families develop the skills to nurture, support, and guide their members throughout their lives; to grow in economic security; and to contribute to and be supported by caring communities. The program contains three focus areas: family development, housing, and resource management. NIFA staff work in partnership with land-grant university faculty and other collaborators to develop programs and information in each of these three focus areas.
