In 2012-2013, RAISE Texas' work will focus on four action campaigns: Alternative Small Dollar Consumer Loan Products and Policies, Community Tax Centers and EITC, Expanding Access to Education, and Matched Savings Accounts.
RAISE Texas and the Texas Attorney General’s Office- Child Support Division will be presenting in three locations throughout Texas. These events will be a great opportunity for organizations that serve clients receiving child support in Texas to get a better understanding on how the system works and information on a number of pilot asset-building activities occurring across the state.
