Spotlight on Poverty & Opportunity, 2021 Year in Review

Posted by Spotlight on Poverty and Opportunity on January 4, 2022

As we reach the end of another tumultuous and challenging year, we wanted to take a moment to thank our loyal readers and also highlight some of our top content for the year. While it has been another year of loss and displacement for many across the United States, the poverty and opportunity community also saw glimmers of hope in the implementation of new policies—many with bipartisan support—that offer inventive new solutions. From the expanded Child Tax Credit to expanding internet access to continuing efforts to help the food insecure, Spotlight has strived to keep our community informed and enlightened. At Spotlight, we continued in 2021 to do what we do best – collect, curate, and share the latest news, research, data, and opinion on poverty and opportunity with our readers.

This year, we published dozens of Spotlight Exclusive interviews and commentaries from leading policymakers, researchers, authors, and advocates from across the political spectrum. We co-convened a series of conversations about the pandemic policy landscape, with particular attention to the Child Tax Credit.
