The recent economic downturn has tremendously impacted communities and families in the United States, especially young families. There is a growing chorus of voices calling for new models and solutions that meet the needs of both young parents and their children collectively. Two-generation programming provides an important poverty reduction roadmap for young families, making service providers, policy makers, and government officials critical stakeholders in moving this strategy forward. This policy report summarizes findings from direct service providers and advocates in advancing two-generation strategies. The recommendations outline both federal and state-level policies and regulatory actions to strengthen this approach. It also addresses critical organizational capacity imperatives for existing direct service providers. These policy priorities should provide a comprehensive framework to support young parents and their children toward economic mobility (author abstract). View the paper.
