This event was held on November 18, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST


On November 18, 2022, ECFC was joined by researchers from Child Trends and the Rapid Assessment of Pandemic Impact on Development (RAPID) Project to unpack what data, and families themselves, tell us about poverty declines and what funders should know about families’ biggest challenges and what helps families most.

Moderator: Rebecca Gomez, Program Officer, Education Program, Heising-Simons Foundation


Our discussion built on Child Trends’ report, Lessons From a Historic Decline in Child Poverty, examining the factors contributing to the historic 59% decline in child poverty between 1993 and 2019, using the Supplemental Poverty Measure; and real experiences of families responding to RAPID surveys.
