Recent research shows stalled or declining economic opportunity and upward mobility for today’s families. For low-income families, limited economic opportunity has lasting impacts on their and their children’s overall well-being. This panel discussion, moderated by Jeannie Chaffin (Administration for Children and Families), will address policy levers and approaches to improve economic mobility for low-income families, focusing on programs and populations of interest to ACF. Panelists are:

• Greg Acs (The Urban Institute)

• Aparna Mathur (American Enterprise Institute)

• Ida Rademacher (Corporation for Enterprise Development) (conference program description)

This presentation was given at the 2014 Welfare Research and Evaluation Conference (WREC).
