About CFE Coalition

With support from the CFE Fund, the Cities for Financial Empowerment Coalition (CFE Coalition) brings together pioneering municipal governments from across the country that have begun to use their power and positions to advance innovative financial empowerment initiatives. Already, its 12 member cities representing over 19 million people have made tangible and measurable commitments to supporting financial empowerment programming in their cities, and are now joining together to both teach and learn from one another. By working with key partners in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, the CFE Coalition also leverages its members’ collective power to advance the financial empowerment agenda on a state and national level. Founded by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, the Cities for Financial Empowerment (CFE) Coalition is co-chaired by New York City and San Francisco.

Co-Chairs: New York City and San Francisco; Member Cities: Chicago, Hawai'i County, Los Angeles, Louisville, Miami, Newark, Providence, San Antonio, Savannah, and Seattle.
