​A major challenge facing the United States is to create thriving communities that enable low- and moderate-income families to lead lives with a reasonable degree of stability, support and resources to take care of their basic needs, find satisfaction in life and raise and educate their children successfully. It seems likely that a truly adequate response to this challenge will rest on multidisciplinary research on finances, physical and mental health, employment, housing, child development and education, community well-being, political access and representation, and environmental sustainability.
