Research suggests that childhood poverty impedes children’s healthy growth and success in adulthood. In 2015, Congress asked the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to conduct a study of child poverty in the US and identify evidence-based policies to reduce it. The recently released report, “A Roadmap to Reducing Child Poverty,” describes two packages of federal policies that would cut US child poverty by half within a decade.

But what would it take to turn report proposals into congressional authorization for new federal spending? Do key stakeholders agree that reducing child poverty is a priority for federal policy? And if authorized, how much would new federal spending really help poor children?

Join AEI for a presentation on the report, followed by a panel discussion on the realistic prospects for the report’s proposals to improve children’s lives.

Join the conversation on social media with @AEI on Twitter and Facebook.
