A Roadmap to Reducing Child Poverty: A Report from the National Academy of Sciences

Despite decreasing child poverty rates over the last 50 years, 9.7 million U.S. children live in families with incomes below the poverty line. The Center for Poverty Research, University of California-Davis, will host a live presentation on January 16, 2020 from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. PT at the Center’s Sacramento location to discuss a report from the National Academy of Sciences on child poverty. During this presentation, a University of California-Irvine professor will highlight causal evidence on the consequences of poverty on children’s development and research on anti-poverty programs’ impact on children. He will also review poverty reduction and employment changes for various policy approaches aimed at reducing child poverty by half over the next decade.
