Impact Intergenerational Poverty


Nebraska is still struggling from a slow recovery after the recession, with high poverty and unemployment rates across the state. A state-wide strategic policy blueprint is needed for the legislature to increase the accountability and efficiency of state efforts to mitigate poverty.


Senator Mello has proposed establishing a bipartisan, interbranch task force to evaluate and identify programs to enable the state government to invest in initiatives that are working to reduce poverty across the state. By using data to fund what works, the legislature will be able to improve the effectiveness of its impact on intergenerational poverty and boost economic growth across the state that benefits everyone.
