About this grant

This grant provides support to the Job Opportunities Task Force for its Maryland CASH Campaign — a network of asset-building programs that promote economic security for Maryland workers. Objectives of the grant include: 1) engaging new constituencies in state asset-building activities; 2) advocating for policies that expand savings opportunities and incentives; and 3) expanding the availability of financial education and counseling. The Maryland CASH Campaign is the only program focused solely on providing asset building and other financial security opportunities to low-income Marylanders. 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.
