WHAT INDIANA CAN DO

There are many policies that Indiana could enact to improve its climate for asset building and preservation:

Increase Incomes, Reduce Debt, and Encourage Savings: To reduce income and asset poverty and household debt, Indiana should help residents maximize their incomes by expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit and remove the disincentive for low-income families to save by lifting asset limits in public benefit programs.

Protect Homeowners and Stabilize Communities: To address the high foreclosure and delinquent mortgage loan rates, Indiana should strengthen its policies around foreclosure prevention and protections.

Create Jobs through Self-Employment: To reduce unemployment and underemployment, Indiana should support microenterprises to create jobs through self-employment.
