This press release announced a $1 million grant from the Wells Fargo Foundation to increase the size of the Bank On Fellowship Program, which funds a full-time Bank On coalition leader for two years to focus solely on improving banking access for residents. The CFE Fund, with support from the Wells Fargo Foundation, welcomes six Bank On coalitions (Bank On Florida; Bank On Martinsville-Henry; Bank On Pierce County; Bank On Pueblo County; Bank On Rochester; and Bank On Tulsa) to the third cohort of the Bank On Fellowship. The Bank On Fellowship program is the first national initiative of its kind focused on building a multi-city network of Bank On program coordinators, equipping them with the training, tools, and resources to make significant advancements in local banking access efforts and at the same time generating best practices for other coalitions around the country.
