Preparing for a child should be a happy time in people's lives, but the financial obligations that come with preparing for a child can prove to be a large expense. To help, we recently created a new guide to help new parents, those who are expecting, and those thinking about having a baby with the financial aspects of having a child. Our guide covers: (1)The cost of having a child, (2) What to plan for throughout pregnancy, (3) Financial steps to take once a child is born and more! Annuity.org helps you make the right decisions for your financial future.

Many of these programs are part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), while others are run through other agencies either in collaboration with HUD or on their own.
