The pandemic relief bill includes a child benefit package with the potential to cut child poverty to about 6% from 14%, according to projections from the Center on Poverty and Social Policy at Columbia University. This brief webinar explores:
- Why child poverty is important and its impacts on children
- How it is measured
- Issues of equity and opportunity related to child poverty
- How the stimulus bill works to reduce child poverty
- What funders can do to leverage the bill in their communities and make these changes permanent
Two experts from the Center on Poverty and Social Policy at Columbia will join us to share their research – Dr. Megan Curran & Dr. Chris Wimer.
