About this grant

Renewal funding will support the New America Foundation’s continued efforts to promote children’s savings account programs and policies across states and municipalities. The specific activities proposed include: 1) working with state and local stakeholders to develop and promote children’s savings account policy ideas; 2) highlighting children’s savings account program design and implementation best practices; and 3) advancing policymakers’ understanding and leadership of children’s savings account strategies. The New America Foundation is a public policy institute whose purpose is to bring new voices and ideas to the forefront of America’s public discourse by investing in outstanding individuals and ideas that transcend the conventional political spectrum.
