Protecting and educating Kansas consumers is an important part of the work we do every day at the OSBC.
In fact, it is part of our mission statement.
OSBC Mission Statement – Ensure the integrity of regulated providers of financial services through responsible and proactive oversight, while protecting and educating consumers.
Over the last 5 years the OSBC has reached over 100,000 consumers
using Consumer Education Grant funds to sponsor local programs.
Grant funds are awarded to organizations that provide financial literacy (money management skills) to Kansas consumers. Qualifying applicants must submit an application to be considered. The grant process is competitive, and recipients must provide measurable results. Consumer education funds come from fines and settlements with companies within the regulatory jurisdiction of the Consumer and Mortgage Lending Division of the OSBC; therefore, available grant funds can fluctuate from year to year. No taxpayer monies are used for these grants.
The Consumer Education Grant Application is linked below and due by June 1st.
The Outcomes Report is linked below and due by August 1st following the grant period.
