Maura Corrigan
Visiting Fellow
American Enterprise Institute (AEI)

Maura Corrigan is a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where she studies and evaluates programs related to child welfare, child support, food assistance and disability. In addition to her research and writing, she works with human services officials and leaders at the state level to make them aware of the latest federal policy developments and reform ideas relevant to social welfare policy. She also works to educate federal policymakers about promising state-level social services innovations.

Corrigan is a former chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court and a former first assistant US attorney for Detroit, Michigan. Before joining AEI, after a distinguished legal career, she served as director of the Michigan Department of Human Services, where she oversaw public assistance programs for low-income and vulnerable families and children in Michigan. Programs included food, cash, and medical assistance; foster care and adoption services; child support; and children's protective services. As director of the Department of Human Services, Corrigan oversaw a 66 percent reduction in the number of individuals dependent on cash welfare, rolled out an innovative program to help the disabled, and left office with nearly 350,000 fewer Michigan residents needing food assistance.

Corrigan has a J.D. from the University of Detroit Law School and a B.A. from Marygrove College.
