Since 2013 ECOnorthwest has supported the Oregon Business Council’s (OBC’s) poverty reduction and economic mobility work. In earlier years, the Poverty Reduction Task Force provided in-depth strategic and tactical advice to business leaders advocating for public policy to reduce poverty. The Task Force was, to our knowledge, the first and only of its kind for a mainstream business organization in the United States. It collaborated with social service providers and other organizations to develop and advance short- and long-term policy agendas aimed at interrupting intergenerational poverty and mitigating poverty’s disproportionate effects on communities of color. Task Force efforts helped lead to changes such as state-level reforms in TANF and childcare tax credits and an increase in the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for families with preschool-aged children. A long-term agenda—developed with input from national and local experts—foresaw a long-overdue update to the definition of poverty and a redesigned safety net that better responds to a dynamic 21st Century economy. From 2019 to 2021, ECO managed a collaboration between Oregon partners (OBC, Governor Kate Brown, and the Oregon Community Foundation) and Opportunity Insights, a leading national research institute. The goal of the partnership was to increase upward mobility of Oregon’s children from low-income families and children of color. The Oregon Business Plan’s current economic mobility imperative grew out of OBC’s poverty reduction work.
