As part of the Equitable Wealth Initiative, PCDC is supporting distribution of a survey to better understand their communities’ experiences with wealth and debt.
The goals of the research are to:
• Level set their understanding of the existence and drivers of a racial wealth gap in Philadelphia
• Combine quantitative trends and qualitative research around:
o Housing purchase, refinance, and credit scores (income and assets)
o Student debt (extractive policies)
o Criminal justice debt (extractive policies)
o Tangled titles (intergenerational mechanisms)
• Broaden the definition of and experience of wealth.
The report will be published by the Philadelphia Federal Reserve and serve as a key tool to engage stakeholders in deepening strategies around wealth building in the region.
Respondents will be compensated $10 for their time.
