About the 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. Its 20 member cities representing over 23 million people have made tangible, measurable commitments to supporting financial empowerment programming, and both teach and learn from one another. The CFE Coalition also leverages its members’ collective power to advance the financial empowerment agenda on a state and national level, including through advocating for key policy priorities. Founded by New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, the CFE Coalition is currently chaired by San Francisco and New York City.
