Asset Building Financial Inclusion Report

SEED Account Monitoring Research at June 30, 2006

Saving for Education, Entrepreneurship and Downpayment (SEED) is a national policy, practice and research initiative designed to test the efficacy of and inform policy for a national system of asset-building accounts for children and youth. SEED Account Monitoring research includes work with non-profit community partners to study accounts established for low- and moderate income children across the country and in Puerto Rico. SEED explores varying account structures and financial education for participants of varying ages and in different demographic, geographic, and organizational contexts. Saving at SEED community partner sites began in Fall 2003. This report provides a snapshot of the demographic profile of SEED participants and preliminary asset accumulation in SEED.
