Our August 2011 newsletter includes:
- A report, Taking Asset Building and Earnings Incentives to Scale in HUD-Assisted Rental Housing, from the New America Foundation highlights how housing assistance is not an entitlement.
- Exploring the Relationship Between Asset Holding and Family Economic Strain, a report from the New America Foundation, shows that feelings of psychological distress such as worry, anger, and depression increase with the duration of joblessness.
- The Disparities in Assets and Ownership: Limitations to the American Dream in Communities of Color report from Illinois Asset Building Group shows how many pursue the American Dream each year, reaching for a more successful and prosperous future. However, this dream fails to become a reality for many Illinois families, particularly households of color.
