Economic Empowerment

Overview

Economic empowerment is the capacity to preserve and grow resources that expand quality of life choices. BBI, in partnership with the National Disability Institute as well as government, financial institutions, and community organizations is testing a variety of strategies to strengthen the ability of individuals with disabilities to develop and control income and assets.

Assets include savings, investments, home and business ownership, and human capital gained from continuing education. Economic empowerment puts you back in control of your financial life by improving economic stability, decreasing stress, and offering savings strategies that will not cause loss of public benefits.
