The Michigan Asset Building Coalition
The Michigan Asset Building Coalition (ABC) is a diverse, bipartisan alliance of nonprofit, for-profit and governmental organizations, institutions and individuals actively engaged in supporting effective strategies to reduce asset poverty and help working families achieve lasting and sustainable financial security. Working collaboratively in Action Committees, ABC members utilize their experience and expertise as asset building practitioners to recommend specific changes in state and federal policy that improves the quality of life for Michigan families and the communities they call home.
Michigan Asset Building Policy Project
The Michigan Asset Building Policy Project (ABPP) at the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan (CEDAM) strategically coordinates all policy, communication and advocacy efforts of the ABC. Working to advance the ABC Policy Agenda, the ABPP actively engages policymakers and stakeholders to support public policy that increases access to higher education, career-advancement and job-training opportunities, improves personal economic and finance skills, and empowers low-wage workers and families to escape poverty through the building and development of personal assets.
