to the mission of the poverty research center program is capacity building - supporting faculty research and faculty training; supporting and mentoring students in poverty and social policy related careers and reaching out to scholars unlikely to participate extensively in HHS programs to support the nation's poverty research effort.

The goals of the program will be to (1) contribute to the effective use of scientific knowledge about family poverty and well-being in the formation of public policy; (2) educate the scientific community and especially relatively early-career scholars about the development of public policy, and how applied poverty research can support this development; (3) provide opportunities to carry out research; and (4) establish a more effective liaison between poverty scholarship and federal research and policy-making mechanisms.
