The "Stretch Your Bucks (Without Breaking Your Back)" series runs each Thursday through the month. The free community program, which helps households gain control of their finances, is taught by Utah State University and Weber County Extension.
Attendance at the classes may help participants qualify for an Individual Development Account, a matched-savings program provided by the AAA Fair Credit Foundation to help individuals and families build assets. For more information on IDA, visit www.uidan.org or call 801-787-0727.
