    Georgia: Use available state funds to reduce child poverty
    September 2, 2009 --

    (Opinion) Some $165 million in federal stimulus money could be used to reduce child poverty in Georgia, and state officials should seize the opportunity to put those dollars to work. So says Clare Richie, senior policy analyst at the Georgia Budget & Policy Institute. The money can be used for direct cash assistance and subsidized employment, but Richie notes innovative programs from other states that Georgia could also take on: car ownership, matched savings accounts, career planning and more.
