Governor Hochul launches first-ever advisory council to reduce child poverty statewide

  • Child Poverty Reduction Advisory Council Will Convene to Cut Child Poverty in Half in New York State Over the Next Decade
  • Approximately One in Five Children Were Estimated to Live in Poverty in New York in 2021

Governor Kathy Hochul announced the launch of the Child Poverty Reduction Advisory Council which will develop a plan to cut child poverty in half over the next decade. Authorized via the Child Poverty Reduction Act, the diverse panel will begin developing this plan during its first meeting in Albany on Thursday, October 13.

The council's statutory membership includes Westchester Children's Association Executive Director and NPW board member Allison Lake. 

"Alleviating poverty for all New Yorkers - especially our youngest - is a key priority for my administration," Governor Hochul said. "This talented and diverse group of policy experts, service providers, advocates, and community members will examine both proven strategies and new approaches to further this goal and address the broad and systemic inequities that perpetuate cycles of poverty in communities throughout New York State."

The council is charged with developing evidence-based recommendations for reducing child poverty in New York State by 50 percent over the next ten years. As part of this effort, the council will conduct comprehensive data analyses, create a timeline with annual benchmarks, determine effective metrics for measuring the state's progress reducing child poverty, and issue reports.
