Assets for Independence Act Evaluation

Asset Building

This project provided the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families (ACF) with assistance in designing the next evaluation of the Assets for Independence (AFI)  program. Building on ACF’s evaluation of the AFI program and the state of the Individual Development Account (IDA) field, we reviewed research findings and data sources from IDA programs and developed an evaluation plan.
