To foster research on poverty in the South the UKCPR proposed five programs in its reauthorization as an Area Poverty Research Center: A competitive Regional Small Grants Program, which provides research support to non- University of Kentucky faculty conducting poverty research with an emphasis on the South. A competitive Young Investigators Development Grants Program, which provides development funds to support new and continuing research on poverty by non-University of Kentucky young academics in social and behavioral sciences.

A competitive HBCU, 1890s, and Tribal Colleges and Universities Program, which provides research support to faculty at these universities conducting research on poverty issues of either regional or national interest. A competitive Internal Grants Program, which is open to all University of Kentucky UKCPR faculty affiliates conducting research on issues salient to low-income populations.
