About Prosperity Now

Prosperity Now works to build a fair and just economy free from structural inequity and racism -- an economy where everyone can fully participate across their life cycles and low-income individuals and families can prosper without exception. Founded as CFED in 1979, Prosperity Now recently underwent a strategic planning process to refresh its vision, brand, position, and programming model. 

Summary

The Director of Applied Research leads the strategic development and execution of the applied research function at Prosperity Now, which seeks to identify and better understand both the barriers to prosperity in LMI communities and communities of color and the promising solutions and strategies to help households overcome those barriers. Reporting to the Interim VP of Policy, the Director serves as the spokesperson of applied research for Prosperity Now both internally and externally. The work of the team includes:

  • Producing case-making data and data analysis—namely our flagship Prosperity Now Scorecard to illustrate conditions within communities and about the racial wealth divide;
  • Conducting qualitative and research-based human center design projects to ensure that solutions are created with the experiences and voices of LMI and communities of color in mind;
  • Supporting the development and measurement of promising practices and effective solutions for Prosperity Now’s program and policy teams and field of practice
