This chapter explains that geography matters to the American welfare state, particularly for policies and programs targeted at working poor populations. It argues that policymakers, scholars, and communities, should be concerned with issues of equality and stability in the provision of safety net assistance. It added that the geography of the safety net is closely related to the issues of race, poverty, joblessness, and social isolation, in communities.

Keywords:   geography, welfare state, working poor, equality, stability
