In The Region:

New research from the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland says America’s cities continue to grow poorer – and increasingly that poverty is concentrated in certain neighborhoods. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze spoke with the lead researcher on what’s happened over the last decade and why that’s a concern beyond the boundaries of those neighborhoods.

Dionissi Aliprantis lives over on West 4th Street in downtown Cleveland and walks to work each day at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. That means he’s walking through one of the poorest cities in America -- and through a city his own research shows now ranks fourth out of 100 nationwide when it comes to a concentration in poverty in certain neighborhoods.

That’s Dionissi Aliprantis of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. He says not everything has to be left to optimism that the data will simply change, as groups like the Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood and Sisters of Charity try to take a neighborhood approach toward improving children’s health, education and prospects for a better life.
