Assets & Opportunity Initiative: Leverages the power of household financial security data, the experiences of asset-building practitioners, and the influence of advocates and policymakers to raise awareness of asset-building issues and improve programs and policies that help low- and moderate-income families build financial security.
The Assets & Opportunity Scorecard is a comprehensive look at Americans’ financial security today and their opportunities to create a more prosperous future. It assesses the 50 states and the District of Columbia on 130 outcome and policy measures, which describe how well residents are faring and what states can do to help them build and protect assets.
