The FDIC is testing a “GetBanked” campaign in Houston and Atlanta to try to attract unbanked people to open a checking account at member banks.

“The goal of this targeted, pilot campaign is to support financial empowerment by encouraging consumers to consider opening a checking account that can result in access to safer and lower-cost financial products,” the FDIC said in announcing the pilot program.
