The Arkansas Financial Education Commission was established by Act 1025 of 2021 during the 93rd General Assembly. Sen. Missy Irvin and Rep. Bruce Cozart co-sponsored the legislation.

The Financial Education Commission was formed to help respond to our state’s need for – and access to –  free educational resources that will help Arkansans in all geographic areas and socioeconomic backgrounds achieve financial well-being.


The nine-person Commission operates under the authority of the Arkansas State Treasurer. Six members represent state financial or education agencies and three members represent the Arkansas public, private or nonprofit sector.
