The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify a potential funding entity, and write a grant to fund a homeownership counseling and training program that would offer comprehensive homeownership education services and financial literacy training to existing homeowners, first time homebuyers, and renters. A grant was written to support a homeownership education program in the City of South El Monte, California, operated by South El Monte Neighborhood Housing Services, Incorporated, a fictitious agency that qualified for funding from NeigborWorks America. In light of the financial crisis in the nation, financial literacy education should be facilitated by social workers as a poverty alleviation tool by linking financially vulnerable people and significant providers of financial education. The contribution of social work to financial literacy education could be substantiated, based on the profession's theoretical foundation.
