Rural Dimensions of Welfare Reform: A Policy Briefing and Research Synthesis

The Northwestern University/University of Chicago Joint Center for Poverty Research organized a May 2000 academic conference on issues of poverty in rural areas. This research explored how people in rural areas will fare under changes in welfare programs and food assistance policies.

This research wsa shared with Congressional staffers and aides during a June 2000 congressional briefing.  A summary report of the research was also prepared, as well as a book.  This report is available from The Northwestern University/University of Chicago Joint Center for Poverty Research website at  http://www.jcpr.org/RuralPovertyReport.pdf.
