SparkPoint West Contra Costa County and SparkPoint Oakland are among five Bay Area locations sharing a $450,000 grant by Wells Fargo as part of an effort to provide financial counseling for low-and moderate-income households, Wells Fargo announced Tuesday.

The money is part of a five-year, $5 million partnership between Wells Fargo and United Way to provide households with financial education, training and access to financial services.

In addition to the Richmond and Oakland SparkPoints, three other area locations sharing the $450,000 are: SparkPoint Solano, SparkPoint American Canyon and SparkPoint Marin.

Created by United Way of the Bay Area, SparkPoint Centers are financial education centers that help individuals and families with a range of services, including creating step-by-step personal financial plans.
