Economic Opportunity

An overview of our work on economic opportunity in Oklahoma

Financial security and economic opportunity should be within reach for all Oklahomans. OK Policy analyzes ideas to reduce poverty and increase opportunities for individuals and families. We promote policies to expand ownership of assets which are critical to maintaining economic security over a lifetime, such as homes, businesses, vehicles, savings, investments, education, good jobs, and good credit scores.

Resource: Benefits simulator helps families understand assistance programs and helps support better policies

OK Policy’s simulator is a menu-driven Microsoft Excel worksheet in which users input details about a family to see how assistance programs help them at various hours of work and hourly wages. Users can also decide which assistance programs and tax credits they want to consider or choose all options to see all the help they could receive.
