2014 Assets Learning Conference

Family Assets Count: Data-Driven Decision-Making at the Local Level

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
10:15 - 11:45 AM

Room: George Washington

Income inequality is on the rise and more and more families are feeling economically vulnerable as real wages stay stagnant and the cost of living continues to rise. To address this growing problem, asset-building stakeholders urgently need new data tools to ensure that increasingly scarce resources have real positive impact on the families that need them most. Hear about the new Family Assets Count program, a major national collaboration between CFED and Citi Community Development aimed at ensuring that local asset-building stakeholders have the data, tools and resources they need to develop the next generation of asset-building policies, programs and partnerships. Panelists from the cities of Boston and Dallas will discuss the role that data play not only in identifying problems, but also in raising awareness, bringing new partners to the table and getting the attention of local leaders.
