Despite the outward signs of a growing economy, many Americans live on an economic precipice. Stagnant wages, lack of mobility, income volatility, and low savings make it difficult for many individuals and families to gain and sustain economic traction. Although economic insecurity is a national problem, local communities across the nation are developing innovative solutions to tackle its root causes and chronic effects.

BPC, partnering with the National Association of Counties, has canvassed county-led efforts aimed at addressing the full range of problems caused by economic insecurity. This event highlighted some of these leading innovations and explored ideas and policies that could spread the benefits of these innovations more widely.
