In addition to providing support for the National Poverty Center, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services funds three Area Poverty Research Centers. Each area center tackles poverty-related issues of regional or state interest. Like the National Poverty Center, the area centers seek to improve our understanding of the nature, causes, correlates, and consequences of poverty and to inform program and policies to alleviate poverty.
