Opportunity Insights: Expanding Possibilities for Children to Rise Out of Poverty

Grant Year: 2021


Raj Chetty, David Deming, John Friedman, and Nathaniel Hendren will direct the research program of Opportunity Insights, a policy lab working to identify approaches to increase economic opportunity and social mobility through effective public policies. They will explore how post-secondary education, neighborhoods, and peer groups can shape the later life outcomes of children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers, reports, and policy briefs.
