The Community Action Association of Pennsylvania (CAAP) is excited to announce the release of our new poverty report that we put together in collaboration with the Coalition on Human Needs. The report, called "Poverty and Progress: The State of Being Poor in Pennsylvania and New Threats Ahead", is based on the latest U.S. Census data that was released in September. Poverty and Progress gives a concise overview of the progress we have made in Pennsylvania in our efforts to reduce poverty. We hope you find this report valuable, and we hope you will share it with your colleagues.

On September 12, the United States Census Bureau released national survey data about income and poverty, as well as national and state data about health insurance coverage. As predicted, there was a significant reduction in poverty - the largest two-year decline since 1969. The reduction is evident in both official and Supplemental Poverty measures. Two conclusions can be drawn from the report: poverty reduction programs are working, and they must be funded if year-to-year improvement is expected to continue in the future.
