The North Carolina Assets Alliance is a state-wide coalition of public, private and non-profit organizations whose shared vision is to expand economic opportunity and build a more stable financial future for all North Carolinians.
The N.C. Assets Alliance educates the public and policymakers about asset-based strategies that connect households and communities to work and income supports, provide opportunities to generate savings, and build and protect assets.
Our next membership meeting is scheduled for September 21 from 10:00-1:00 at United Way of Greater Greensboro.
