Jin Huang is research associate professor at Washington University’s Brown School and associate professor of social work at Saint Louis University. Huang is active in the Grand Challenges for Social Work as co-lead of the network to Build Financial Capability and Assets For All. His CSD research focuses on global asset building, Child Development Accounts, and financial capability.
We are building a body of evidence in financial capability, defined as both the knowledge to make optimal financial decisions and access to appropriate and beneficial financial services.
We address the gap in professional FCAB training of social workers and other human service practitioners who serve low- and moderate-income households.
The SEED OK experiment, which began in 2007, is a largescale policy test of universal, automatic, and progressive Child Development Accounts. The CDA uses the Oklahoma 529 College Savings Plan platform.
