Background: The Milwaukee Children's Savings Account (CSA) program is an action item contained in a report developed by the Department of City Development titled Growing Prosperity: An Action Agenda for Economic Development in the City of Milwaukee. This report called for researching national Children's Savings Account models as a strategy to support the academic success of Milwaukee's children and and ultimately grow the City's workforce.

A CSA workgroup was developed, which included cross-sector stakeholders from schools, financial service providers and community groups. Milwaukee Public Schools was a member of the workgroup.

The attached presentation provides an overview of the initiative and identifies next steps.
