Abstract

High levels of poverty in the City of Buffalo continue to persist despite significant economic development in the last several years. With recent data by the U.S. Census Bureau listing Buffalo as the third poorest city in the nation, it is imperative that a comprehensive and strategic approach be put into place to address this situation. This report is designed to be a blueprint for strategic planning and action to reduce the level of poverty in Buffalo and assure that all of Buffalo‘s residents share in future economic growth. This document, the Buffalo Poverty Reduction Blueprint, is based on a comprehensive review of poverty data, best practices across the nation and discussions with community leaders and experts in the field.
