This slide deck is a resource from the webinar Barriers to Economic Mobility for Low-Income Working Families with Young Children. Children’s development and family financial stability are inextricably linked. The 2Gen approach is designed to support improved child and family outcomes. Low-income working families with young children may experience benefits cliffs and other structural financial barriers that can challenge career advancement and economic self-sufficiency. The Atlanta Fed’s Advancing Careers initiative conducts research on benefits cliffs and structural barriers to career advancement and develops tools to support community and state efforts to improve economic security for families and meet the talent needs of businesses for a healthy economy.
