Local, Local, Local!
 
There is awesome power in LOCAL approaches.  Everything from education to homelessness to poverty to retirement could be solved at a local level.  
 
The primary key is a local supplementary currency and a local monetary system that uses it wisely.  A good example can be gotten from something called "The Worgl Experiment".   There, one mayor introduced a concept that caused a town to absolutely thrive in the middle of the Great Depression!  While every other town in the world was struggling, this town was busy moving forward with full employment, essentially no poverty, and everyone being happy.  This exciting project or experiment continued until the Austrian National Bank got involved and shut it down and then everyone went back to suffering again.
 
Another good tool for local efforts is the "co-op".  Using a co-op approach, ANY city or town (or ALL) could get any number of projects completed quite easily.  
 
Education could be 100% free from monetary limits.
Retirement could happen at 55 and be phenomenal.
New transportation systems and energy systems could be implemented.
Every run down home and building could be renovated or rebuilt.
HEALTHY food could be absolutely abundant.
Health care could be completely free and essentially everyone could be healthy and happy.
The Central Government would be free then to handle only what the Central Government should handle.  
The national debt would essentially be NEUTRALIZED!
