 Where To Go From Here in Seeking Stronger Income Support and Poverty Reduction: Universal Basic Income, A Permanent, Substantially Expanded Child Tax Credit, Other Measures Such as More Robust Rental Assistance?

Robert Greenstein, the founder and former head of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities who has been a leader in efforts to expand and defend US social programs for the past five decades, will lead a series of three study groups exploring these issues.  Attendance at any or all of these sessions is open to anyone interested.

This series is co-sponsored by the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy.

​Session 3 of What Succeeds and What Fails Politically in Efforts to Strengthen the US Social Safety Net and Markedly Reduce Poverty -- and What Lessons Can We Draw for the Future?

This study group will focus on what are the most promising programmatic strategies to pursue for the years ahead if the goal is to successfully enact and secure substantial and enduring improvements in the US social safety net -- especially more robust income support -- that can materially reduce poverty and hardship and improve well-being for large numbers of people.

​This study group / discussion is open to all. Registration is not necessary.
