Addressing Poverty in Detroit

Detroit in Transition – A plan to move Detroit Forward (Part 5 of 8)

In addition, 60 percent of the children living in Detroit live in poverty. For adults living in Detroit below the poverty level, that rate is 38 percent.  However, it would be higher if the federal government increased the poverty guidelines. If it did, Detroit would be able to secure additional resources to help its struggling population. Instead, many try to make ends meet within this gap and continue to struggle.
