HONOLULU (AP) - Government agencies and nonprofit organizations will help people better understand how to manage their money at a financial literacy fair in downtown Honolulu this week.

Topics include preparing for home ownership, checking credit reports, planning for retirement, investing and paying taxes.

A representative from the federal regulator of commodities and futures will be there to help raise awareness about financial fraud.

Hawaii Commissioner of Securities Tung Chan says the exhibitors are trusted nonprofits and government agencies dedicated to helping educate and protect Hawaii consumers.

The Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs is sponsoring the event on Friday as part of Financial Literacy Month.

The three-hour event begins at 10:30 a.m. in Tamarind Park at Bishop Square.
