MADISON – Ellie Hartman, right, of the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development was a featured presenter at the October 9 meeting of the Governor’s Council on Financial Literacy. Hartman spoke about the Wisconsin Promise Initiative, a program that is intended to improve services for youth recipients of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and their families. The goal of Wisconsin Promise is to help the youth participants and their families meet their school and work goals in order to better their income and financial stability, reducing poverty.
Wisconsin Promise is one of six such programs under way in the United States. State agencies involved in the program are DWD, the Department of Health Services, the Department of Children and Families, and the Department of Public Instruction.
