The National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP) is the nation’s leading public policy center dedicated to promoting the economic security, health, and well-being of America’s low-income families and children. NCCP uses research to inform policy and practice with the goal of ensuring positive outcomes for the next generation. We promote family-oriented solutions at the state and national levels.

Our vision:

  • Family economic security
  • Strong, nurturing families
  • Healthy child development

Using knowledge gained from research, we can find ways to:

  • Make work pay and improve work supports.
  • Provide nurturing early learning environments for young children.
  • Secure adequate health and mental health care for our nation’s families.
