The Baltimore CASH Campaign—Creating Assets, Savings and Hope—was formed in the fall of 2001 to implement strategies to increase financial stability opportunities for low-income Baltimore families. The campaign is the work of a coalition that includes foundations, nonprofits, community-based organizations, workforce development agencies, Baltimore City government, the Internal Revenue Service, and hundreds of volunteers. The campaign focuses on "making work pay" by leveraging the tax code as a gateway to financial services for working families.
