The Office of University Partnerships is pleased to share with you the following information from the MacArthur Foundation.
The MacArthur Foundation announced on December 11, 2012, that it was accepting abstracts for its "How Housing Matters to Families and Communities" initiative. This is a 5-year, $25 million research initiative designed to deepen the literature on the effect that investments in housing have on social and economic outcomes, beyond shelter.
This year's competition will proceed in two stages. First, the foundation invites the submission of a research abstract by no later than Friday, January 11, 2013. By Tuesday, March 19, 2013, the foundation will choose a number of abstracts for which full proposals will be invited. Full proposals will be due by Monday, April 29, 2013. These proposals will undergo an external review process with final funding decisions made in September 2013.
