Domestic Public Policy

Promoting Opportunity and Growth through Place-Based Policies

Grant Year: 2019

Hilary Hoynes will direct the research and publications program of the Opportunity Lab. The lab will explore the causes and consequences of geographic disparities in income and growth and examine the extent to which a variety of public policies, such as tax incentives, economic development strategies, or investments in human capital, can improve the economies of distressed localities. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers, policy briefs, and presentations for public officials.
