Episode Details

The Supplemental Poverty Measure put the 2022 U.S. child poverty rate at 12%, more than double the 5% rate in 2021. Child poverty is especially high for families with children under 5, children in single-mother households, children of color, and children in immigrant families. Even families who are not poor face financial burdens and difficulties, especially with respect to securing good, safe, and reliable childcare. The Annie E. Casey Foundation has been at the forefront of documenting the challenges facing children and their families, and suggesting policies to alleviate these problems. Lisa Hamilton, the President and CEO of the Foundation joins EconoFact Chats to discuss their research on these issues and the policies they advocate to support families with children.

Lisa became the President of the Annie E. Casey Foundation in 2019 after serving in a variety of other roles there, including Chief Program Officer and Vice President of External Affairs.
