CSD launches new College Savings Initiative

Through the College Savings Initiative, CSD and the New America Foundation will examine innovative ways to create more inclusive 529 college savings plans. Ultimately, the aim is to increase post-secondary education access and completion rates among lower-income, disadvantaged students through changes in public policy and reforms to 529 college savings plans. This initiative, which is funded by the Lumina Foundation for Education and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, builds on CSD’s Inclusive 529 Savings Policy work to study and inform policy for college savings plans.
