The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Managing on a Limited Income.

Kennedy, Marilyn J.

CURA evaluated a pioneering 1996 project developed by the Ramsey County Extension Service to teach financial management to poor families. The goal was to teach families how to work with the resources available to them and help them gain a sense of control over their financial affairs. There were numerous signs that the project was successful in doing this. Many also gained hope by participating in the project. Support from other participants and from staff reduced their isolation and knowing that a public agency cared enough to create such a project lifted their spirits.
