    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — The University of Chicago's School of Social Service Administration is one of the country's leading social work graduate schools. In 2006 and in 2009, the Foundation funded the research team to explore the implementation and community-building process at three mixed-income developments at former public housing sites in Chicago. This grant supports continued analysis by researchers to mine the rich sets of data that were created through the Foundation's previous support to further explore and disseminate findings on mixed-income communities. Researchers also will plan a future in-depth research project on the experience of youth affected by the CHA's Plan for Transformation.
