Fellowships to USA local leaders to create new economic empowerment programs in cooperation with local government agencies. Successful applicants will receive programmatic funding, technical assistance, and training. The purpose of the program is to train individuals to serve as the local government's financial empowerment consultant.

Through the FE Cities initiative, the CFE Fund will support cohorts of local leaders, trained in a new two-year FE Fellowship training program. Each FE Fellow will work with the CFE Fund to launch and lead a newly established local Office of Financial Empowerment, managing existing and launching new financial empowerment programs and initiatives. FE Fellows will also serve as the local government’s internal financial empowerment consultant; bring a financial stability lens to a range of related issues; and leverage their leadership role to ensure financial empowerment is central to local anti-poverty efforts. FE Fellows also will be well-positioned to bring financial empowerment services and expertise into local racial equity efforts.
