Group says Springfield poverty trend will grow without action
About one out of every four people in Springfield lives in poverty. The National Resource Network, a group that aims to help cities with poverty rates higher than 20 percent, says the trend will only continue if something isn’t done.
Researchers from the National Resource Network presented a report about the city to the Springfield City Council at its lunch meeting on Tuesday.
The network found one problem in Springfield is a big shortage of affordable housing. The group plans to hold a workshop with community leaders to develop a targeted approach to fixing that housing supply gap.https://www.ky3.com/content/news/Group-says-Springfield-poverty-trend-will-grow-without-action-390369702.html
