Poverty is not evenly distributed across theAmerican landscape. At the county level of aggregation,poverty is overwhelmingly a rural problem, withthe most remote rural places at the greatest disadvantage.1 Although research has shown that “place matters”in poverty outcomes and policy impacts, mostantipoverty policy in the U.S. is essentially place-blind,not considering how differences among places in economicor social conditions might affect policy outcomes.This paper makes the case that state policyshould give renewed attention to locality-based jobcreation and community capacity building, whilemaintaining and expanding policy innovations thatmake work pay, provide work supports and buildworker productivity.
