The Initiative's mission is to create sustainable activities across multiple disciplines that are designed to address issues of persistent poverty specific to the working and nonworking poor. The Initiative serves as a bridge between research and public policy intended to ameliorate the consequences and/or factors associated with persistent poverty. The intended outcome is the support of sound scholarly research that will promote public policy designed to improve both individual economic well-being and community prosperity.
