Report: Background on Intergenerational Poverty, Intergenerational Welfare Reform Commission, July 6, 2016

There is a difference between “situational poverty” and “intergenerational poverty.” Understanding the difference is key in figuring out the correct approach and how best to work with families most in need. Majority of individuals utilizing the public welfare system are considered situational. The use is generally temporary based on the situation that led to their need of support. Those considered “intergenerational” receive benefits more long term, as a child and now as an adult.
