SEED for Oklahoma Kids: Summary of Project, Research, and Policy Implications

Center for Social Development’s (CSD) primary goal in the years ahead is to demonstrate, disseminate, inform, and influence a universal, progressive Child Development Account (CDA) policy in the United States. As such, CSD conceived and proposed the Universal Model in SEED, now known as SEED for Oklahoma Kids. SEED is a large-scale, multi-faceted demonstration of child development accounts. SEED for Oklahoma Kids is a keystone of the demonstration, and will use a 529 College Savings Plan to test the policy concept of giving every child an account at birth.
