State Policy Toolbox
The State Policy Toolbox is a rich collection of publications and resources developed by CFED to inform and support the work of policymakers, advocates and other stakeholders in the asset-building field. Our Policy Briefs, Resource Guides, Research Briefs, and Assets & Opportunity monthly policy updates provide detailed information on state asset-building and protection policies, including elements of a strong policy, information on what states can do to improve specific policies, detailed state-by-state analyses of action already taken by states, and updates on recent policy action at the state-level.
Policy & Research Briefs
CFED’s Policy Briefs are short documents for policymakers or allies that outline why the policy matters, what states can do to improve the policy, the elements of a strong policy, and the impact and results of policy change to date. The Research Briefs are short summaries of available research on the impact of policies on households’ ability to build and protect wealth.
CFED’s Resource Guide equip advocates with information on why the policy matters, what states can do to improve the policy, the elements of a strong policy, the impact and results of policy change to date, examples of successful policy change strategies, state precedents, advice on policy campaigns, as well as where you can find additional resources.
