Research on the Interaction of Welfare Reform and Housing Programs
     grant competition.

     The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) invites academic
     researchers, contract research organizations, and community-based
     organizations to apply for funding to research the interaction of
     welfare reform with housing programs and HUD initiatives that support
     economic self-sufficiency. Research should examine potential policy
     responses to this interaction.  Projects should also focus on the
     effects of statutory, regulatory, and locally-initiated actions
     affecting families with children. HUD's Office of Policy Development
     and Research (PD&R) will fund up to twelve awards ranging from $25,000
     to $50,000.  Initial abstracts are due by 2/9/98. A copy of the
     complete announcement can be found at:
