Poverty, Inequality, and Mobility among Hispanic Populations, 2012-2013
The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) in collaboration with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded funding to the National Poverty Research Center at Stanford University – the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality - to support research on poverty and inequality among low-income Hispanic populations. The research will focus on areas such as social mobility, health and wellbeing, immigration, new generations and trend analyses.
The Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality expects to award five research grants related to these topic areas. The center has established a network of scholars with expertise in low-income Hispanic populations to mentor grantees. More information about the initiative, including the Call for Proposals, will be available at http://www.stanford.edu/group/scspi.
The points of contact are Clare DiSalvo (Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation) and Don Oellerich (Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation).
