The Moffat County United Way has completed a community assessment of the area that looked at poverty, unemployment, housing, transportation and other issues that impact those living in poverty. The assessment showed that more than 11% of Moffat County’s population is living below the poverty level. According to the report, between 2000 and 2015, the poverty rate in Moffat County increased by almost 2%. Of the households that are living in poverty, single mother and married households account for 40% a piece, while single father households make up about 20% of those in poverty. Numbers show that over 17% of children ages 0 to 17 are currently living below the poverty line in the county. In the fall of 2016, 44.4% of Moffat County kids qualified for free or reduced lunch, up more than 3% from the number of kids who qualified for the program in 2011. Tomorrow, Wild West Radio News will look at results from the Assessment concerning employment, transportation and housing issues.
