To encourage and share research on the application of the behavioral sciences to the field of asset-building and financial security, CFED has created this repository for practitioners. With the BETA Project, CFED is using behavioral economics research to test behavioral tweaks in order to improve the efficiency and reach of asset-building programs. In addition, CFED organizes conference sessions, webinars and other convenings to share behavioral economics findings. Check back often to find out how you can get involved!
