The Intergenerational Welfare Reform Commission released a plan Thursday for addressing Utah’s intergenerational poverty. The plan makes recommendations for both rural and urban communities to address areas of well being in early childhood development, education, family economic stability and health. The plan also makes specific recommendations for local leaders, faith-based communities, businesses and academic institutions of how they can help. “Utah is committed to addressing the complex issue of intergenerational poverty with our strategic five-and ten-year plan,” shares Lt. Governor Spencer Cox. “To be successful in our efforts, we urge leaders and organizations to consider the recommendations laid out in the plan and work together on solutions that could lift families out of the cycle of poverty.” Utah’s definition of intergenerational poverty is when two or more successive generations of a family remain on public assistance.
