Fall of 2021 marked the five-year anniversary of the launch of Poverty Solutions. Since then, we have undertaken hundreds of projects, established powerful community partnerships throughout the country, and demonstrated the myriad ways we can connect our research to policy and practice.
Every year, Poverty Solutions publishes an Impact Report highlighting our progress, projects, and partnerships during that period.
In 2022, Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan explored and advanced new ways to tackle the structures of poverty. We maintained our approach of listening to communities, collaboratively building a research agenda, collecting and analyzing data, proposing evidence-based solutions, and supporting the implementation of new policies and practices. This strategy has helped Poverty Solutions impact the lives of millions of people for the better and has advanced U-M’s reputation as a national leader in this space.
