Advocates for Ohio’s Future’s updated Ohio Poverty Snapshot resource card highlights the reality of poverty in Ohio in a way that you can easily share. On one side the card shows the 2017 Federal Poverty Guidelines used to determine eligibility for a variety of public support programs. The other side highlights some of Ohio's most in-demand jobs, most of which pay poverty-level wages, leaving Ohioans in need of extra support to make ends meet.
