West Coast Poverty Center


To follow-up on the research questions that emerge from practitioner-academic interactions, the West Coast Poverty Center (WCPC) offers two types of funds to help support collaborations between WCPC scholars and community practitioners or agencies on topics related to poverty, social policy, and individual or family financial well-being, broadly construed. These funds are available through the support of the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.

Mini-grants of $5,000 - $10,000 are intended to support pilot studies, initial data analyses, and/or the development of applications for larger sources of funding.
