“Investing in Dreams: A Blueprint for Designing Children’s Savings Account Programs” is an interactive guide to help organizations, cities, counties and states design successful CSA programs. This resource reflects the latest thinking on successful design and implementation of CSA programs from Prosperity Now and the many practitioners, researchers, funders and others who have helped shape this field. While all CSA programs share common elements, each individual program is tailored to meet local priorities and work with available resources. “Investing in Dreams” helps you create your own customized CSA program by taking you step-by-step through the process of designing and launching a program. It contains a host of valuable resources, tools and information throughout, such as a budget calculator to help you estimate the cost of your program and “In Action” examples from various CSA programs.”
