BREAKING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY IN NEW YORK CITY.
One in six New Yorkers—nearly 1.4 million people—lives below the federal poverty line (defined as $26,500 in annual income for a family of four). And nearly half of all New York City residents live in low-income families.
While many social and economic factors create the conditions that lead people into poverty, there are many effective solutions being delivered across New York City every day to break the cycle. Through investments in our three funding portfolios—Education; Family Support; and Youth, Workforce, and Justice—we seek to help the city's non-profit human service community create lasting change that will impact families for generations.
