Poverty Studies

AEI’s poverty studies scholars aim to maintain our nation’s progress in ameliorating material poverty while identifying and driving the public policy innovations needed to increase economic and social prosperity for still-struggling individuals, families, and communities. The program’s scholars consistently emphasize encouraging work, promoting two-parent families, and following the evidence to improve America’s safety net.
