May 2019 - April 2023
The grant is to support a conference being held by the Center on Assets, Education, and Inclusion (AEDI) on Children’s Savings Accounts (CSAs). CSA programs are interventions that seek to build assets for children to use as long-term investments. They have the potential to act as the plumbing for an asset building agenda that helps low-income children thrive, linking poor children with accounts and creating the space for receipt of both private and public wealth-building transfers. The conference will bring together policy makers, practitioners, and researchers from across the country.
