On May 19, 2016, the Anti-Poverty Network of New Jersey and the John S. Watson Institute for Public Policy released a joint report that investigates the budgetary consequences of concentrated poverty in four New Jersey Cities. 


The report, The Cost of Poverty: The Perpetuating Cycle of Concentrated Poverty in New Jersey Cities, examines the budgetary pressures in four New Jersey cities facing the challenges of decreasing resources to address persistent poverty: Bridgeton, Passaic, Perth Amboy, and Trenton.


The report can be found here and the two page summary can be found here.
