CGMA will continue to cover the costs for individual counseling for all eligible CGMA clients to include:
- Financial and budget counseling
- Debt management programs when deemed necessary by a credit counselor
- Pre-bankruptcy counseling and education

- Foreclosure prevention counseling
In addition, CGMA will cover the costs for financial training workshops to include:
