Research & Projects

Poverty Solutions’ research efforts focus on informing, identifying, and testing new strategies to prevent and alleviate poverty. Supported efforts include researchers from different paths of study. All research will focus on one of three core domains:

  • Expanding economic opportunity to reduce poverty
  • Reducing educational disparities to promote social mobility
  • Addressing the health consequences of poverty

The initiative is currently funding collaborative academic-community research projects on strategies to prevent and alleviate poverty in Michigan, co-sponsored by the Detroit Community-Academic Urban Research Center and other projects focused on informing strategies that seek to prevent and alleviate poverty.
