Reducing Child Poverty in California
About the Program
Despite strong economic growth, California continues to struggle with high rates of child poverty. High housing costs and the prevalence of low-wage work are two major contributing factors. And while the social safety net helps many children, it misses others. How could lower housing costs and minimum wage increases affect child poverty across the state? And how might these effects compare to potential expansions of the safety net targeting specific gaps? PPIC researcher Caroline Danielson will outline findings from a new report.
In addition, an online interactive tool allows users to explore how policy changes could affect child poverty in their county.
This event is supported with funding from the PPIC Corporate Circle and the PPIC Donor Circle. This research was supported with funding from the LA Partnership for Early Childhood Investment and Sunlight Giving.
There is no charge to attend and lunch will be provided.
