About this grant

This grant provides continuing support to Washington University for a statewide demonstration of children’s savings accounts. Because the demonstration is being conducted within the state of Oklahoma’s existing college savings plan system, it could serve as a prototype policy for scaling up asset-building opportunities from thousands to millions of families. Key goals for the grant period are to: 1) coordinate and manage third-year implementation efforts; 2) undertake account monitoring research and reporting activities; and 3) communicate research findings and other learnings to a broad group of stakeholders, including policymakers and the media.
