CFED Scorecard

Policy Resources

To help advocates make the case for asset-building policies and stay informed throughout the year, the Scorecard includes downloadable briefs, guides and regular updates on a wide-range of policies that help build financial security.

Policy Change Map

This new interactive map provides a visual depiction of where changes to Scorecard policies occurred between 2014 and December 31, 2015. The map displays progress – or the lack thereof – made on 55 policies for which CFED can track year-to-year changes. Clicking on each state highlights the specific policies for which a state made positive and/or negative changes in 2015.

Policy Briefs

Customized by state, Policy Briefs outline why a policy matters, what states can do to improve the policy, policy adoption nationally and whether the selected state has adopted the policy. These Briefs can serve as "leave-behinds" when meeting with policymakers or allies. Download here.

Policy Resource Guides

In-depth Resource Guides include examples of successful policy change strategies, state precedents, advice on policy campaigns and where to find additional resources. Resource Guides are available for the following topics:

Policy Innovation Briefs

Policy Innovation Briefs highlight emerging policy ideas that may not yet have been adopted into state law.
