The poverty rate for people with disabilities is 28.4 percent, nearly double the U.S. national average. One in three people with disabilities live in poverty. People with disabilities are less likely to have a financial literacy training and are severely un- banked. The VISTA will work on expanding the work of FIC by developing a training module for financial coaches and design for the formation of an Advisory Committee to guide the work of FIC.
