The Niagara Prosperity Initiative is an annual investment by Niagara Region to support poverty reduction and prevention activities.
We're developing a five-year Niagara Poverty Reduction Strategy and want to hear what you feel are some of the biggest poverty-related issues facing Niagara. We also want to know what you feel is being done well to address poverty and where you see opportunities for improvement.
The Niagara Poverty Reduction Strategy will align with related initiatives, such as the Niagara Community Safety and Wellbeing Plan, Niagara's Housing and Homelessness Action Plan and the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Action Plan.
