About the Commission
The Illinois Commission on the Elimination of Poverty is an independent body focused on eliminating poverty in our state in a manner consistent with international human rights standards. As such, the Commission’s charge is twofold:
- To create and monitor a specific, substantive, measurable strategic plan for cutting extreme poverty in Illinois; and
- To offer advice and comment on state matters that may positively or negatively impact the state’s goal of ending poverty.
