cfed.org/blog/inclusiveeconomy Overview of Presentation Background on the Native Asset Building Assessment Initiative Why it is needed Why the Northwest Area Foundation is supporting it Feedback from Webinar Attendees
cfed.org/blog/inclusiveeconomy Background on the Native Asset Building Assessment Native CDFIs and others are implementing asset- building strategies: youth and adult matched savings accounts financial education and coaching access to capital training and technical assistance for Native American entrepreneurs.
cfed.org/blog/inclusiveeconomy Background on the Native Asset Building Assessment Assessment is designed to: learn more about these efforts, spotlight best practices, map the programs, and develop a shared framework. An outcome will be a widely disseminated white paper for the assets field, Native and non-Native.
cfed.org/blog/inclusiveeconomy Why it is needed Little discussion exists about: the best way to promote unique asset-building approaches in Native communities; the need for a framework for these approaches to Native asset-building; and successful implementation strategies.
cfed.org/blog/inclusiveeconomy Why it is needed To assist with strategic planning, making the policy case, and fundraising for Native asset building. To promote awareness of best practices in Native asset building to help other programs start and expand. To map out existing Native asset-building programs to help Native and non-Native programs collaborate and network more effectively.
cfed.org/blog/inclusiveeconomy Why the Northwest Area Foundation is supporting it The NWAF has made a commitment that 40% of annual grant dollars are dedicated to Native-led organizations in its eight-state region. Region: Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and 75 Native Nations. This builds on decades of NWAF investment in Native economic prosperity and poverty alleviation. This will help the NWAF understand the opportunities, gaps, and how to positively influence asset building in the region.
