This study examines the effects of a financial management training program for low-income audiences on financial knowledge and practices. Findings show that substantial pre-training knowledge deficiencies existed among immigrant participants on basic financial management issues. The program was effective in improving the financial knowledge and related financial behaviors of immigrant participants, and immigrants gained more in financial knowledge from the training than other participants. Implications are discussed for developing programs to improve the financial capacity of low-income immigrants.
