Financial Assets & Income
Are there widespread opportunities for wealth creation and protection, particularly for low-income residents?
Asset ownership and financial security are interconnected. Owning more assets means having greater economic stability and mobility. Assets enable millions of Americans to plan for the future, buy a home, prepare for retirement, send their children to college and weather unexpected financial storms. But in order to build and maintain assets, particularly in low-income communities, a financial environment must be in place to provide adequate tools and incentives to earn, save and invest. Accumulated assets must then be preserved and protected so that the benefits of holding onto assets may continue.
