New York City’s Center for Economic Opportunity: The Evolution of an Agency and Its Mission

Funded by the New York City Center for Economic Opportunity, the project is designed to gain and disseminate a clear, balanced, in-depth understanding of CEO’s goals, policies, and operations—and how and why those have changed over time. The project will produce a final report that describes the evolution of an on-going, anti-poverty center from the idea of creating a Commission for Economic Opportunity, to the establishment of the Center, and through the many decisions and developments that led to the Center’s current anti-poverty mission and its mode of operation.  MEF Associates is a subcontractor to Rockefeller Institute of Government at SUNY Albany.
