What We Do
Research, programs and interventions that address the root causes and consequences of poverty.
Poverty is about more than lacking the resources to meet basic needs, such as food, clothing and shelter. We recognize the interrelatedness of race, gender and poverty. Therefore, NYU McSilver is dedicated to dismantling structural racism and other forms of systemic oppression through our work.Read more about ENDING POVERTY

How We Help
The McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research at New York University is committed to creating new knowledge about the root causes of poverty, developing evidence-based interventions to address its consequences, and rapidly translating research findings into action through policy and best practices.
Our event programming extends the conversations started by our work to challenge harmful narratives, advance new thinking and inspire positive change.
