0 minutes, 43 seconds Read

Megan A. Curran is the Director of Policy at the Center on Poverty and Social Policy at Columbia University. Her research explores policy strategies for child poverty reduction, with an emphasis on income supports, poverty targets, and cross-national learning—including how the structure and impact of child allowance programs in other wealthy nations might inform the creation of a national US child allowance. Recent work on how COVID-19 economic relief efforts impact children and families also examines the ways in which a regularly delivered child allowance can support children through the immediate crisis and beyond. Curran has worked as a legislative analyst in the United States House of Representatives and the Scottish Parliament and as a researcher on child and family poverty and policy solutions in the United States, United Kingdom, and Ireland. Curran holds a PhD in Social Policy from University College Dublin, Ireland.
