RFP: Small Grants for Poverty-related Research

The Center for Poverty Research (CPR), located at the University of California, Davis, would like to encourage public policy researchers in your program to participate in our Small Grants Competition (RFP due Jan. 31). CPR seeks to fund research that will expand our understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty. The goals of this program are to expand research in our Center's core research areas, with sound research design and high potential impact. CPR anticipates funding up to 5 proposals, up to a maximum of $20,000 per award.

About the UC Center for Poverty Research
The Center for Poverty Research is one of three poverty centers with core funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE). The Center was created in September 2011. One of its core missions is to facilitate non-partisan academic research on poverty in the United States, with special emphasis on the particular research themes listed below:

- Labor markets and poverty
- The non-cash safety net, broadly construed to include education and health policies
- Children and the intergenerational transmission of poverty
- Immigration and poverty, especially in connection with the above three areas

Projects using either qualitative or quantitative data sources are eligible for funding. Because of the short length of the performance period (activities completed by 2/2013), we do not anticipate funding projects that seek to collect new data.

For more information and details of the RFP, please visit http://economics.ucdavis.edu/faculty/ahstevens/grants2012.pdf. Inquiries may be sent to poverty@ucdavis.edu.

Thanks so much,
