    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Poverty and Race Research Action Council is a civil rights policy organization whose primary mission is to promote research-based advocacy on issues related to inequality. The Council focuses on the impacts of racial and economic segregation and the role of government structures and policies in connecting families to opportunity. It will use this grant to convene a national housing mobility conference, and develop a housing mobility manual and toolkit that will help educate policymakers and other key stakeholders about the evidence-based benefits of housing mobility programs.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Poverty and Race Research Action Council $75,000 between 2003 and 2014.
