Maryland Gov. Wes Moore introduces legislation to fight childhood, generational poverty

January 30, 2024

As the 2024 legislative session gains momentum, Gov. Wes Moore introduced legislation Monday aimed at fighting generational wealth disparities and childhood poverty. Brought on behalf of his administration, the ENOUGH, or Engaging Neighborhoods, Organizations, Unions, Governments, and Households Act of 2024, would create a grant program that feeds public funding and money provided by the private sector and philanthropies into Maryland’s rural, suburban and urban communities with the highest rates of generational poverty in an effort to transform them into safer communities with economic momentum.
