Given the Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund’s (FEEA) extensive experience working directly with federal families on all aspects and at all stages of their lives, FEEA has a unique understanding of where feds can use more easy-to-understand, unbiased information on things affecting them outside of work. 

Two years ago, FEEA launched the #FedLifeHacks program. The program includes a collection of lifehacks in written and video format, developed by FEEA and others, covering topics like financial wellness, health & wellness, education & professional growth, family, free time & fun, and personal philanthropy & volunteerism.

Since the program was launched, there have been over 110,000 visits to #FedLifeHacks, which can be accessed here: https://feea.org/category/fedlifehacks/

FEEA also provides emergency hardship loans, disaster relief, scholarships, and K-12 tutoring. (https://feea.org/our-programs/) and COVID-19 response programs (https://feea.org/coronavirus/).
