The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine released a new report, Reducing Intergenerational Poverty, that examines the drivers of long-term, intergenerational poverty, identifies potential policies and programs to reduce it, and recommends actions to address gaps in data and research. The report identifies possible drivers of intergenerational poverty and lists seven key domains, including child welfare. The report finds that child maltreatment and involvement with the child welfare system are highly correlated with income and poverty. Children who experience abuse, neglect, and/or involvement with child welfare systems are at elevated risk of intergenerational poverty.
