Policy Futures
Poverty and Opportunity

The nation suffers from persistent poverty and stagnant incomes of low- and moderate-income people. Policy Futures develops federal and state policies to reduce poverty and promote opportunity.  It documents and amplifies what works, develops and advances reforms to address intractable poverty, and examines how to implement programs more effectively. It focuses in particular on reducing child poverty and enhancing longer-term economic success for today’s children and young adults.
