Grants to RAND
2013 (Duration 1 year, 2 months)
Community & Economic Development
SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA — The RAND Corporation is a non-partisan, independent policy research firm that works across a range of areas, including health, education, national security and criminal justice. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, RAND worked with Gulf Coast states and localities to develop analytical tools and decision frameworks to help communities understand climate risks and develop and prioritize adaptation and mitigation responses. Building on this work, RAND will undertake research to develop metrics to gauge the quality of local government climate adaptation preparedness and the extent to which such capacities are integrated into ongoing land use, infrastructure and human service planning.
2013 (Inactive Grant)
SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA — This grant will support a multidisciplinary team of researchers at the RAND Corporation for the project "A Benefit-Cost Framework for State Immigration Policies." Although immigration policy and immigration enforcement has traditionally been a federal responsibility, a number of states have taken a more active role in the immigration policy arena, largely in response to growing concerns about the costs and impacts of immigration. This four-part project will contribute to a deeper understanding of the economic and fiscal impacts of immigration and immigration policies at the state level.
