Government Accountability Office Report: Poverty Reduction

Posted by The Aspen Institute on August 4, 2020

States and communities are where policy translates into real life outcomes. For nearly a decade, state and local entities have leveraged various federal programs and funding streams to integrate systems and services through a 2Gen approach. This powerful momentum is bipartisan, practical, scalable and most importantly, centered around families – their needs, their experiences, and their voices.

The new Government Accountability Office (GAO) report, Poverty Reduction: HHS Can Improve Information to Assist States and Localities in Adopting Approaches that Serve Whole Families, is a milestone piece that will continue to drive that 2Gen momentum as states and local governments innovate to support family well-being. Through highlighting the lessons and experience of 23 state and local governments that have used the 2Gen approach as they strategically braid and blend federal resources, the report validates the power and the potential of 2Gen approaches to improve family well-being and economic mobility for parents and children together.
