Policy Plans to Reduce Poverty and Inequality

What set of policy interventions can best mitigate and prevent poverty and reduce inequality? Drawing on poverty data and available research evidence, the Center has developed comprehensive recommendations for promising policy strategies to address poverty and inequality now while disrupting their upstream drivers.

The Center produced a white paper outlining an all-inclusive plan to cut poverty in California, on behalf of EPIC (End Poverty in California):

The Center developed a plan of comprehensive policy recommendations to permanently reduce California poverty by focusing on children - through providing access to long-term asset- and skill-building opportunities, while also addressing families' needs now. Partial funding for this research was provided by GRACE, Inc. The research was utilized to inform areas of focus for the End Child Poverty in California coalition.
