U-M Poverty Solutions impact report highlights efforts in Detroit

A growing partnership on economic mobility with the city of Detroit, a new collaboration with Harvard University, community voices, policy impact and student engagement are among the highlights in the University of Michigan’s Poverty Solutions impact report released earlier this winter.

The report includes efforts at Poverty Solutions that have led to concrete policy changes based on data and evidence, including changes in the way that Detroit Community Schools collects data on homelessness and housing stability, and a partnership on the evaluation of a new policy in the city related to keeping renters in their homes.

The report also details progress on the Partnership on Economic Mobility between U-M’s Poverty Solutions initiative and the city of Detroit Mayor’s Office, which includes an expanding list of projects, new staff embedded in city hall and a fellowship program.
