What We Do
Research, programs and interventions that address the root causes and consequences of 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.
