AASA Responds to OMB Proposal on Poverty Measure

AASA submitted formal comments in opposition to the Administration’s recent proposal to change the poverty measure by submitting comments against the proposal. Any changes to how we define poverty have particularly significant implications for children, who disproportionately experience poverty in our society. Changes to the poverty measure will inform and impact policy and budget choices, including standards to determine eligibility for benefits that are critical to children’s healthy development, such food assistance, housing vouchers, health benefits, and more.
