Posted by on May 24, 2010

PathWays PA is proud to announce the release of the Self-Sufficiency Standard for Pennsylvania 2010-2011!

Copies of the report can now be downloaded at

The Standard measures how much income a family of a certain composition in a given place must earn to meet their basic needs without public or private assistance. The Standard is based on the cost of each basic need in each county-food, housing, health care, child care, transportation and taxes- determined independently using official and publicly available data.

Join us for the Philadelphia Release on June 2 at 2 PM!
Come to this Release and learn more about the Self-Sufficiency Standard, what this edition says about Pennsylvania, and to learn ways you can use the Standard in your work.
