In 2012, CFED collected data on state policy changes that occurred, or for which data became available, after October 2011. Click here to see the policy progress – or lack thereof – that states have made on each of 12 policies that expand financial security and opportunity. You can also listen to a webinar providing analysis and commentary about the data.
The Scorecard assesses states on the strength of their policies to expand economic opportunity, including a detailed assessment of 12 policy priorities across the five Issue Areas. Policy Briefs and Resource Guides are available for every policy priority.
Published with the 2009-2010 Assets & Opportunity Scorecard, Innovation Policy Briefs are additional policy summaries of new and creative approaches to addressing social issues that, while not currently enacted, are under active consideration in several states.
