Deep South Texas Financial Literacy Alliance (DSTFLA)
In October 2012, GEAR UP launched its inaugural Financial Literacy Summit. One outgrowth of that was the development of the Deep South Texas Financial Literacy Alliance whose goal is to increase the financial literacy awareness of families in Deep South Texas. This was accomplished by forming a partnership between institutions of higher education, financial institutions, school districts, and business and community entities in order to improve the financial status of the Region.DSTFLA Members
