State Assets Policy

The State Assets Policy Project (SAPP) informs development of asset-building policies at the state level. SAPP is specifically designed to include traditionally marginalized groups.

SAPP projects include the Rural Wealth project, which focuses on marginalized rural communities, and the coalition-building project in Black Belt states, which focuses on land loss associated with natural disaster and racial disparities. SAPP offers state-by-state asset-building policy information to policy makers and program staff, and supports formation of state-level asset-building coalitions.

In addition, CSD hosts annual conferences that bring stakeholders together to discuss policy, share best practices, and plan for the future.
