The Colors of Poverty

The increasing racial and ethnic diversity of the population poses important and complex challenges to poverty researchers and to policy makers. Too often, these challenges are overlooked in existing poverty research. To address this gap, the NPC will undertake a major cross-cutting research project on race, immigration, and poverty.

The project will fund new research by top scholars, and will culminate in a major conference, an edited volume, and appropriate outreach activities to the political and research community.
