— A road show is coming to the state with free help to people who want better control over their personal finances during these tough economic times.

The financial literacy program called the Your Money Bus brings financial advisers to Raleigh on Tuesday and Greensboro on Thursday and Friday.

State Treasurer Janet Cowell will be on hand in both cities. 

Anyone who visits the green bus can get help figuring out ways to reduce personal debt and save money. The financial advisers do not charge fees, but may be available for longer-term work.

The bus is crisscrossing the country for a second year. It's sponsored by a National Association of Personal Financial Advisors foundation, Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine, and online retail brokerage TD Ameritrade.

Here is a list of the locations the bus will be stopping in Raleigh and Greensboro:

  • Tuesday, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., State Government Complex, 425 North Wilimington, Raleigh
  • Thursday, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., 4 p.m. - 7 p.m., Greensboro Library Hemphill Branch, 2301 W. Vandalia Road Greensboro
