The Financial Management Program, FMP, is made up of a suite of programs and services which extend the role of the government beyond providing regular income support payments to eligible recipients. Crisis and emergency payments and financial counselling are two examples of services aiming to help people learn to make a more informed decision in relation to the resources they have. The main aim of this study is to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of the FMP, to identify best practice within FMP services, and to make recommendations for improving the program.
