Marketplace Literacy Project's mission in the US is to disseminate educational materials to enable marketplace literacy among low-literate, low-income individuals. In a project with the University of Illinois Cooperative Extension, interviews with teachers and clients of nutrition education and observations of their interactions were used to develop educational materials that are currently being assessed in the state of Illinois.  In a project that combines marketplace literacy with maker literacy, support by the University of Illinois Extension and the College of Business, the Illinois Marketplace and Maker Literacy program has been launched in Chicago and Southern Illinois.
