The Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity (NYC Opportunity), formerly known as the Center for Economic Opportunity, was established by Mayor Bloomberg on December 18, 2006 to implement innovative ways to reduce poverty in New York City. NYC Opportunity uses evidence and innovation to reduce poverty and increase equity. We advance research, data and design in the City’s program and policy development, service delivery, and budget decisions. NYC Opportunity’s work includes analyzing existing anti-poverty approaches, developing new interventions, facilitating the sharing of data across City agencies, and rigorously assessing the impact of key initiatives.
