Welfare Research and Evaluation Conference

For more than sixteen years, the Welfare Research and Evaluation Conference (WREC) has been a leading forum for family self-sufficiency and poverty researchers, State and local administrators, practitioners and program operators and Federal officials and policymakers to network with peers and discuss cutting-edge research on family self-sufficiency and social welfare programs and policies.

WREC is moving to a biennial schedule and will hold its next gathering in 2016.
