Developing Solutions: Strategies to Improve Resident Financial Health and Propel Inclusive Growth

Abstract

As findings rooted in data and community-based work increasingly draw a clear link between financial health and inclusive growth, some cities are piloting strategies that address this intersection to ensure all residents can contribute to and benefit from the city’s economic prosperity. These solutions move beyond general financial education to include strategies that cut across sectors and address structural barriers to shared prosperity. Any solution that aims to improve resident financial health and propel inclusive growth should include three elements: community engagement, structural change, and a focus on resilience.
