National Poverty Center

The National Poverty Center (NPC) at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan was established in the fall of 2002 as a university-based, nonpartisan research center. It conducts and promotes multidisciplinary, policy-relevant research, mentors and trains emerging scholars, and informs public discourse on the causes and consequences of poverty. The NPC awards research grants to emerging scholars; conducts large-scale research projects, including the Michigan Recession and Recovery Study (MRRS); mentors visiting scholars and postdoctoral fellows; trains individuals in poverty research and data analysis; engages nearly 200 research affiliates from institutions across the country; coordinates and presents at national seminars, conferences, and policy forums; disseminates over 200 working papers and policy briefs; and publishes edited volumes highlighting NPC-supported poverty research.
