    In September of 2016, CFED concluded the Community Financial Empowerment Learning Partnership, an 18 month engagement generously supported by JPMorgan Chase.  The Learning Partnership consisted of seven groups of community-based organizations seeking to improve their clients’ financial lives by expanding, expanding and aligning financial capability service delivery to more holistically support the communities they serve. Over the course of the project, important learnings emerged about the process of planning for and delivering financial capability services.   Now, CFED is excited to release Paving the Way: A Roadmap for Organizations Partnering to Deliver Financial Capability Services, a brief which describes the phases of the integration lifecycle—discover, design, implement and converge—as experienced by the members of the Learning Partnership. 

    • ·         Communicate early and often.
    • ·         Build buy-in at all levels.
    • ·         Develop a partnership plan.
    • ·         Establish data tracking systems and processes.

    Integrating services can be an iterative and resource intensive process for organizations and this is even more the case when partnering across organizations and communities.  However, applying the lessons and experiences of the organizations in the Learning Partnership, as described in this brief, may simplify the process and ultimately lead to improved impact on the financial capability of low- and moderate- individuals and families.


    We are proud of all that the Learning Partner members accomplished and are pleased to release this brief highlighting their work.

    Want to advocate for a more equitable tax code? This webinar is for you! 

    Join Us For Tax Policy Advocacy 101!

    Creating a More Equitable Tax Code through Advocacy 101!
    Wednesday, February 152–3:30 pm EST

    With all of the recent political changes, we have heard from practitioners an increased desire for opportunities and practical strategies for how to advocate on behalf of low- and moderate-income taxpayers to create a more equitable tax code and promote economic opportunity. CFED’s Federal Policy team has been hard at work developing a crash course in federal tax policy and advocacy opportunities for 501(c)3 organizations. Taxpayer Opportunity Network members and supporters of the Turn It Right-Side Up campaign are invited to join us for this timely discussion to better understand the challenges and advocacy opportunities that lie ahead for community tax preparation programs and the taxpayers you serve.

    CFED’s Federal Legislative Analyst Chad Bolt will share an overview of the most recent federal tax policy landscape and updates related to the community tax preparation field. Janne Huang from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities will also join us to share simple, effective ways for you to engage in advocacy efforts to help your EITC-eligible clients.

    After this webinar, we will extend an invitation for a more in-depth “virtual coffee” on March 15 where we can dive deeper into a community conversation about advocacy strategies—this is your opportunity to share directly with your peers!

    This webinar is free, but advanced registration is required. Register today!

    Unable to attend the live webinar? Register anyway so we can share the recording with you via email after the webinar concludes.

    Good afternoon,

    In the United States today, debt collection is a $13.7 billion dollar industry with more than 6,000 debt collection firms operating in the United States. Debt collection affects 70 million consumers who have or are contacted about a debt in collection. Across the country, we hear from consumers about their experiences with debt collection.

    Check out William's story on debt collection here:

    We’ve heard directly from consumers about their experiences in debt collection. Your voice helps inform our work as we consider how to develop better protections in the debt collection market. Experiences like William’s are one of the reasons why we’re studying the debt collection market and why we’re working to strengthen consumer protections.

    Thank you,

    Join us for a discussion on Capitol Hill about how to protect and expand our social safety net.

    RSVP Today for Our Capitol Hill Policy Forum: Reducing Wealth Inequality and Protecting Consumers at Tax Time and Beyond

    Tax credits and safety net programs are vital for helping low-wage workers keep more of what they’ve earned at tax time and build wealth throughout the year. That wealth can be nearly impossible to retain. CFED's research shows that some 44% of U.S. households are “liquid asset poor,” meaning they have less than three months of savings to live at the poverty level if they suffer an income loss. 

    Join CFED and Tax Credits for Workers and Families on Capitol Hill on February 2 to discuss how policymakers, researchers and advocates can protect the most effective anti-poverty program in the country.

    Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), long-time advocate of consumer protection, safety net programs and the Earned Income Tax Credit, will deliver keynote remarks. Representative Gwen Moore (D-WI), another strong champion for working families, will deliver a second keynote address. Each keynote will be followed by a panel discussion featuring leading researchers, policy experts and advocates.

    A light breakfast will be served at 9 am EST and event activities will commence at 9:30 am. The event, generously sponsored by H&R Block, is free but space is limited. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please RSVP by Monday, January 30.

    Keynote remarks: 

    First Panel Discussion: “Building Wealth: Reducing Wealth Inequality” (10 - 10:50 am)

    • Jeremie Greer, Vice President, Policy & Research, CFED
    • Chye-Ching Huang, Senior Tax Policy Analyst, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
    • Rebecca Vallas, Managing Director, Poverty to Prosperity Program, Center for American Progress
    • Marie van Luling, Chief Government Relations Officer, H&R Block
    • Ida Rademacher, Executive Director, Aspen Institute Financial Security Program (Moderator)

    Second Panel Discussion: “Protecting Wealth: Battling Financial Volatility With Financial Inclusion and Consumer Protection” (11:15 am - noon)

    • David Newville, Director of Government Affairs, CFED
    • Lauren Saunders, Associate Director, The National Consumer Law Center

However, individuals with disabilities can potentially access a wide variety of saving strategies to achieve their savings goals and improve their financial well-being. This webinar will introduce a new way to commit to save for individuals with disabilities through the America Saves Pledge, tools and resources to educate individuals on creating a savings behavior and provide information on three savings opportunities that individuals can access.
