RAISE Texas Virtual Action Summit
“The Roadmap to Financial Resilience”

RAISE Texas is embarking on a journey to change the truth that too many Texans are without an infrastructure of opportunity to help them build financial resiliency. Our plan is to create replicable community sponsored cohorts in Texas that will lead to strong efforts to find solutions, break down barriers, and eventually build long-term financial resilience for vulnerable populations.

Join us as we introduce our new Initiative, “The Roadmap to Financial Resilience”, and start a statewide discussion on how communities can help more Texas families take steps towards financial resilience. This event will be held virtually on November 5-6, 2020 (9:00am-12:30pm) and hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and RAISE Texas. Register TODAY to explore the three key steps on “The Roadmap to Financial Resilience”:

  1. Achieving Short-Term Financial Stability – Offering crisis management to individuals and families still reeling from COVID-19 and additional financial setbacks.
  2. Achieving Income Stability – Developing community partnerships to connect clients to organizations that provide trainings, certification and licensures, and job preparation, as well as working with our target population on how to keep more of their income.
  3. Crafting Emergency Savings Accounts- Creating a combination of savings products and programs that can be replicated in our large, mid-sized, and small cities, as well as rural areas with the overall goal is to increase the number of Texans saving at least $400.
