The Baby Bonds Task Force will launch in spring 2022.
Treasurer Goldberg seeks a diverse cross-sector collaboration with members who have work, research, or volunteer experience in racial wealth equity, child welfare, public policy, community engagement, and asset-building initiatives. The Task Force will also serve as an instrument to engage with impacted communities to allow community participation in the design of the program. If you are interested in volunteering to be a part of the Baby Bonds Task Force, please complete the interest form by Thursday, March 24, 2022.
State Treasurer Deborah Goldberg announced at the Economic Empowerment Trust Fund board meeting on March 7, 2022, that she is convening this task force to explore the creation of Baby Bonds in Massachusetts. The Baby Bonds Task Force will provide comprehensive recommendations to the Treasurer, the Office of Economic Empowerment, the Legislature, and other entities on developing an at-birth publicly funded trust fund program for Massachusetts residents.
