Earlier this year, the Urban Institute and the Georgetown Center on Poverty, Inequality, and Public Policy brought together senior federal and state officials, leading policy experts, and researchers to propose and debate ideas for combating poverty and its harmful effects after the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act expires in 2010.
