WATCH: Is the Rochester-Monroe anti-poverty initiative close to its goal?

It’s been four years since Need to Know reported on a first of its kind initiative that launched in Rochester with much political fanfare.

WXXI’s Veronica Volk recently dug into the initiative to find out if the goals initially made are being kept and to learn what’s changed since that major announcement in 2015. We discuss her recent reporting on this edition of Need to Know.
