Authorized in July 2001, the Governor created the Governor's Commission to Study Poverty in Maryland in December 2001 (Executive Order 01.01.2001.08). The Commission reviewed definitions of poverty, determined the degree to which poverty exists in Maryland, and evaluated its root causes. The Commission also evaluated the correlation between poverty and crime, job loss, and academic performance; assessed poverty's effect on neighborhoods and businesses; and considered the need for, and availability of, resources with which to address the needs of poor Marylanders.

The Commission reported to the Governor in May 2003.
