About The Project
One out of three working families in the District earns less than 200 percent of poverty. To address this issue, DC Appleseed joined the national Working Poor Families Project as a DC partner. Through this effort, DC Appleseed works to improve economic opportunities for low-income families by focusing on policies in three areas: adult education and training, economic development, and working conditions in low-wage jobs. The Working Poor Families Project is supported by the Casey, Ford, Joyce, and Kresge foundations. For more information about the Working Poor Families project, visit www.workingpoorfamilies.org.
