New Jersey's State Budget must be signed and balanced by midnight on June 30. That doesn't leave much time to find ways to fund many initiatives and there is not a lot of money to go around. Despite that, the top lawmaker in the State Senate promised the new spending plan will help New Jersey's poor.
More New Jersey kids are living in poverty and children of color are struggling more than white kids on all fronts, according to a New Jersey Kids Count 2015 report released Monday by Advocates for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ).
New Jersey's approach to tackling poverty has long been to focus separately on children and adults. A new KIDS COUNT policy report released Wednesday by the Annie E. Casey Foundation titled, "Creating Opportunities for Families: A Two-Generation Approach" details how the public, private and non-profit sectors should work together to reduce poverty among the 10 million low-income families with young children in America.
The number of poor people in America is 3 million higher than the official count, encompassing 1 in 6 residents due to out-of-pocket medical costs and work-related expenses, according to a revised census measure released Wednesday.
