Poverty in Utah

poverty in utah
Poverty in Utah is real. It doesn't have to be. Poverty takes many forms - from the panhandler on the street to the family that struggles to make a mortgage payment. 10.3% of Utahns live in poverty. 11.3% of Utah's children live in poverty. Our goal is to alleviate the effects of poverty for the 254,000 Utahns who live with it every day.

Community Action Agencies are organizations established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America's War on Poverty. Utah has nine Community Action Agencies that provide the support and resources families need to obtain self-sufficiency. Community Action Partnership of Utah works with these agencies to help people change their lives.
