About this grant

The goal of the New America Foundation’s asset building program is to broaden the ownership of assets in America – particularly among low- and moderate-income families – in order to provide all citizens with both the means to get ahead and a direct stake in the overall success of the nation’s economy. This grant increase will enable the foundation to hire a communications agency to develop a public relations campaign designed to elevate the profile of children’s savings accounts among journalists and other stakenolders.
