Asset Building

National CAPACD is using its experience as a housing counseling intermediary as a springboard for innovative projects in the Asset Building field that increase financial capability in AAPI communities. Currently, National CAPACD is working in partnership with its members to implement projects that incorporate financial education, coaching and financial products such as Lending Circles to cultivate a savings habit, build credit and increase awareness of and participation in mainstream financial systems. We are also conducting and publishing research focused on financial attitudes, behavior and access to financial products and services within low-income communities of color.
