Practitioners, advocates, policymakers, researchers and grantmakers who care about family financial security are increasingly viewing national tax policy reform as a window of opportunity to advance asset-building policy that will significantly benefit low- and moderate- income people and people of color. Funders have an important role in making this type of reform a reality.
Grantmakers joined AFN on Friday, May 17th from 1:00-2:00 pm (EDT) for a briefing on AFN's new Tax Policy Project. The webinar gave an understanding of current tax reform conversations underway in Washington, the window of opportunity to advance asset-building policy, and the process that AFN will be facilitating to support stakeholders to identify and advance shared priorities as part of the political process.
