Orientation & Recruitment Digital Literacy Implementation (Mayor’s Office of Financial Empowerment)

The Mayor’s Office of Financial Empowerment (OFE) seeks to promote greater digital inclusion by ensuring residents have access to the City of Boston’s financial inclusion services whether at home or at work. OFE’s goal is to reach clients using videos that highlight their concerns, show how working with OFE would address their needs, highlight the ease of participation, as well as improve the effectiveness of one-on-one interaction. 

To that end, OFE seeks proposals for a project that consists of the following deliverables:

  • Create a framework for communicating that financial coaching leads to improved economic wellbeing;
  • Develop a strategy for reaching LMI individuals using videos and social media to enhance participants’ ability to participate in coaching remotely;
  • Create a series of videos (on the coaching process and on key topics such as credit, budgeting, and workforce development) and other outreach and promotional materials such as flyers that would promote the OFE and its work/staff, substituting for or augmenting existing recruitment and orientation;
  • Next steps and/or training for expanded utilization of the videos; and
  • Review of findings from previous analysis and recommendations on modifications for the financial coaching program to improve digital access so as to meet the City’s goal of enabling residents to better access City services.

Up to $75,000 is available for the execution of this project, which is anticipated to begin in mid-August. Please submit any questions to peggy.hinds-watson@boston.gov by June 20, 2022 at 5 p.m. Proposals are due July 13, 2022 by 5 p.m.
