Important Poverty Report from DC Fiscal Policy Institute

Eric Angel, Acting Executive Director

As was clearly underscored by the Census Bureau’s recent release of poverty statistics, poverty remains a significant – and growing – problem in the nation and the District. The DC Fiscal Policy Institute just released an excellent analysis of poverty in the District entitled “Who Is Low Income In DC.” The report provides a detailed demographic profile of persons living in poverty in the District and proposes policy solutions that will help to move poor and low-income persons out of poverty. It is worth a read.
