Intergenerational Poverty Committee

Washington County addresses Intergenerational Poverty using Mentors

While Utah is currently enjoying a higher level of employment, poverty continues to be challenging. Utah’s Lt. Governor Spencer Cox created an Intergenerational Poverty Committee, or IGP, two years ago, to address how to handle the recurring problem from generation to generation. Lt. Gov. Cox asked counties to put together a plan to address issues related to it.

The goal is to reduce the number of Utah families in the cycle of poverty. Washington County’s IGP Committee is using middle class mentors and education, hoping to change the trend of the families impacted.
