Americans who develop a savings habit create a cushion in case of emergency and strengthen the country’s financial foundation. Research shows that even the poorest Americans will save money with relevant incentives and access to savings opportunities. Learn about innovative public/private approaches—from outreach campaigns by banks to video games—that engage more people in traditional financial services.

The Women’s Legislative Network of NCSL is committed to promoting the participation, empowerment and leadership of women legislators in the area of women’s financial stability.

The Network's Financial Stability Project seeks to increase state legislators' understanding of the economic status of American women and to provide in-depth information and tools for legislators working to support women's financial stability.
