About the Program

California continues to struggle with high poverty rates among its youngest children. But does child poverty look the same in the Bay Area as it does in the Central Valley? How can policy responses take into account the vast differences in economic hardships faced by poor families across the state? PPIC researcher Sarah Bohn will outline findings from a new report, and a panel of experts will talk about local factors that affect child poverty and consider promising policy interventions.

This research was supported with funding from the LA Partnership for Early Childhood Investment and Sunlight Giving.
