2010 RAISE Texas Action Summit

"Building Financial Success"

December 9-10, 2010

This year’s RAISE Texas Action Summit will highlight our work across the state in 2010 and will provide an opportunity for Texas asset-building advocates and supporters to help design RAISE Texas’ four action campaign work plans to move our work forward in 2011. We will also showcase several exciting local successes and innovative activities that are advancing the four action campaigns:

  • Community Tax Centers and EITC Campaigns,
  • Matched Savings Accounts,
  • Alternative Small Dollar Consumer Loan Products and Policies, and
  • Expanding Access to Education.

Please plan to attend if you are a practitioner, advocate, state agency staff, legislative staff, representative of financial institutions, community development organization, local government official, EITC/VITA site tax coalition, IDA program administrator, higher education leader, financial and homebuyer education practitioner, credit counselor, or someone that is interested in expanding asset-building opportunities for low- and moderate-income Texans.
