Poverty Task Force Releases Policy Recommendations

Jun 17, 2022

This week, the Michigan Poverty Task Force released its second set of policy recommendations with the goal of lifting residents out of poverty and improving health outcomes. This report includes 29 policy recommendations designed to address disparities, organized around social determinants of health, or non-medical factors that influence health outcomes. The recommendations focus in five key areas:

    • Income and social protection
    • Housing, basic amenities, and the environment
    • Early childhood development
    • Social inclusion and nondiscrimination
    • Access to affordable health services

The task force was created by Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2019. It’s housed with the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity and consists of leaders from 14 state departments, with input from the legislature, philanthropy, and community organizations.
