Assets and Disability

Asset Building

Growing out of our groundbreaking work in the American Dream Demonstration and other areas of research, the Assets and Disability project has examined barriers that make it difficult for people with disabilities to accumulate assets. Through this project, CSD has articulated an agenda for the research needed to build knowledge on effective supports and solutions to those barriers.
