    Exploring Baby Bonds as a Tool to Improve Economic Security

    On Tuesday, September 27, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, in partnership with the Office of the State Treasurer for Connecticut and the Institute on Race, Power and Political Economy at The New School, will host an in-person event on baby bonds in relation to health, wealth, housing, and education.

    Baby bonds are an innovative policy tool that provides children with publicly funded investment accounts that can be accessed at age 18 for specific uses, including education, home ownership, small business, and retirement. The funds are intended as a long-term investment designed to narrow the wealth gap and address generational poverty. As of 2022, eight states and Washington, DC, have passed legislation to introduce baby bond programs and supportive strategies that improve economic security.

    The event will feature Connecticut State Treasurer Shawn T. Wooden and Dr. Darrick Hamilton, founding director of the Institute on Race, Power and Political Economy, who will engage in conversation on the benefits and challenges of baby bond programs and effective strategies to link the bonds to other efforts addressing generational poverty.

    Join us on September 27, 2022, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. EDT. This in-person event is open to the public and the media. Learn more and register.
