Safe Banking Opportunities Project

Banks and credit unions, policy makers and consumer advocates are looking for ways to help households access safe financial products and services that will help them manage their money, pay their bills, develop a credit rating, and build assets.  That market opportunity is ripe, and so, too, is the opportunity for abusive practices and missteps that cost lower- and moderate-income working families precious resources.

The Pew Safe Banking Opportunities Project, a two-year initiative, develops standards for safe, affordable, fair, and empowering bank accounts, promotes their voluntary adoption by banks and credit unions, and educates the public about the standards.
