About this grant

This grant will support the efforts of Solid Ground Washington in promoting 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) strengthening the capacity of the asset coalition. The grantee is a Washington-based nonprofit dedicated to achieving a just and caring community, free from poverty, injustice, and neglect. 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.
