About this grant

This grant will support the Earned Assets Resource Network’s efforts to promote the development and sustainability of state and federal programs and policies that expand asset-building incentives and opportunities for low- and moderate-income families. Objectives of the project include: 1) engaging new constituencies to leverage sustained support for asset-development strategies; 2) informing the public and policymakers about how assets contribute to individual, family, and community economic well-being; and 3) testing innovative policies that bring asset-building opportunities to broad segments of the public. The grantee is a San Francisco-based nonprofit dedicated to helping low-wage workers break the cycle of poverty and create new cycles of prosperity. This is one of eight grants aimed at building the capacity of state asset-building coalitions to effectively promote the development of state asset policies.
