The New America Foundation's Asset Building Program seeks to broaden the ownership of assets in America, especially among low- and moderate-income households, thereby providing all Americans with increased financial security as well as a direct stake in the success of our economy. To achieve this goal, the program works in four areas: policy research, policymaker education, communications, and policy development. With support from the Mott Foundation, the New America Foundation will continue to: 1) develop and articulate a policy agenda focused on enabling more people to save, accumulate resources, and protect their assets throughout the life course; 2) elevate a public discourse around the wide array of ideas, policies, and programs, which promote asset building, savings, and the wealth creation process; and 3) advance policymakers' understanding and leadership of asset building policies.
