About this grant

Important practice and policy achievements have been made in the asset building field over the past decade, yet several challenges remain. Most notably, scale — defined as expanding successes from thousands to millions of families in a cost-efficient manner — remains elusive. This renewal grant will enable Brandeis University to support the development of policy initiatives that address the issue of scale and other asset building challenges by continuing to document and disseminate information about promising strategies. Brandeis University’s Institute on Assets and Social Policy is a public policy institute whose mission is to conduct research that informs policies and practices that broaden wealth, and improve the social and economic well-being of American households.
