Grinstein-Weiss’ savings project awarded $250,000 grant

Michal Grinstein-Weiss, Andréa Taylor, and Clinton Key, in collaboration with Abt Associates, were awarded a $250,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families (ACF) as part of the Assets for Independence Knowledge Development Initiative.

The Assets for Independence Program, administered by ACF, provides the largest source of funding for Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) in the U.S.

Grinstein-Weiss and Taylor will lead the UNC team and will partner with a team of researchers from Abt Associates, to examine asset-building program implementation and to formulate recommendations for the next major evaluation of the AFI program.
