Investing in Opportunity: Rental Assistance and Neighborhoods of Choice

This event has passed.

Recent research demonstrates that the neighborhood a child is born into is enormously influential in shaping lifetime outcomes related to health, income, and academic achievement. Opening pathways for low-income families to move to high-opportunity communities is a proven means to facilitate upward economic mobility while breaking up concentrated poverty.

This webinar will feature a presentation on the research highlighting the role of neighborhoods in childhood development, followed by a discussion of the implications for federal housing policy and the potential for targeted housing support to expand access to opportunity.

Sarah Oppenheimer Executive Director, Opportunity Insights
