Asset Building Policy Network

Asset Building Policy Network 

The Asset Building Policy Network (ABPN) is a coalition of the nation’s preeminent civil rights and advocacy organizations committed to the following core goals:

  • Coordinating savings and asset-building policy and advocacy efforts at a national level
  • Developing a shared communications agenda and strategy
  • Building the capacity of network members and their networks

The ABPN seeks to improve the opportunity for economic progress for low-income individuals and families and in communities of color by increasing local access to responsible and appropriate financial products and services that can enable families to save, invest, preserve, and build financial assets. This is particularly critical in the context of today‘s startling asset poverty statistics and the widening racial wealth gap.

ABPN policy priorities promote long-term economic security—these priorities include: 

  • Expand access to and delivery of safe and affordable financial products and services
  • Promote financial capability and basic protections for consumers
  • Expand access to credit, capital, and technical assistance resources for small businesses
  • Incentivize and expand savings opportunities
