About the McSilver Institute

The McSilver Institute was founded in 2007 through the generosity of Constance and Martin Silver with the purpose of better understanding poverty in New York City and developing practices to address it. The Institute studies current poverty-related issues and programs, pilots interventions in agencies throughout the city, and servers as a supportive resource and change agent for agencies working to address poverty in New York City. “McSilver” is a combination of Constance Silver’s married name and her maiden name, McCatherin.


The McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research conducts, promotes, and disseminates interdisciplinary applied research to address root causes of, effects of, and responses to poverty. Drawing on intellectual and scholarly strengths of New York University and located within the Silver School of Social Work, the Institute partners with New York based agencies and communities to develop research projects and policy/advocacy recommendations that have short- and long-term social impact.
