Pittsburgh residents can receive free help with financial problems at eight locations through a program announced Monday by the city and nonprofit organization Neighborhood Allies.

Residents can receive one-on-one counseling for challenges such as debt, low credit scores, budgeting and saving money, according to the Mayor’s Office. The centers will accept walk-in clients or schedule meetings through an appointment.

The Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund, a New York City nonprofit that selected Pittsburgh to participate in the program, and local charities are providing funding for the $666,000, two-year initiative. The city’s cost is $30,000.
