Did you know that poverty is growing faster in the suburbs than in the City, here in New York and in most metro regions across the country? As elsewhere, the New York metro region faces pervasive challenges of poverty and inequality - and lacks substantial state assistance for vulnerable populations.
Join us as we explore statewide strategies that focus on redesigning and moving policies to provide resources for metro areas. This conversation will dive deep into the underlying issues that perpetuate poverty and inequality – both nationally and regionally— and how philanthropy can address these challenges now and into the future.
- The changing demographics of suburbs and the inadequate infrastructure to address increasing poverty
- How a statewide strategy with urban, suburban, and rural components can address root causes of these social issues
- Why a focused policy effort on the suburbs is critical in increasing political constituency to demand State assistance in the NY metro region
- How national grantmakers can leverage their financial investment and strengthen collective knowledge by partnering with place- based grantmakers on regional solutions
