The Savings for Education, Entrepreneurship and Downpayment (SEED) initiative is a major policy and research project designed to test the efficacy and inform policy for a national system of asset-building accounts for children and youth. The SEED initiative currently works with non-profit community partners to establish and study accounts for low- and moderate-income children across the country and in Puerto Rico. SEED explores varying account structures and financial education across a range of ages and in different demographic, geographic, and organizational contexts. This brief provides a snapshot of the demographic profile of SEED participants.
