Holding out hope for city's poverty plan


   The city's poverty plan was formally unveiled Wednesday, with the heavy lifting to be done by a task force of four working groups charged with developing five-year plans.

   (The complete report can be downloaded here; it's long and may take a minute or two.)

  The plan holds out the possibility of promoting better collaboration and coordination among  agencies, a necessary first step, service providers say, in boosting effectiveness in tackling problems.

   At the same time, the plan did not have policy recommendations, or offer new, big ideas to combat poverty.

   What are your thoughts about the city's new poverty plan? Is it a good first step in significantly reducing poverty?
