Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreements to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, school districts, and for-profit organizations to conduct research on housing policy. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to document the response of low-income renters to new rent policies.

This NOFO announces the availability of funding for qualitative research that will document how low-income renters understand and respond to the new rent policies being tested in the Moving to Work (MTW) Stepped and Tiered Rent Demonstration (STRD). The research funded under this NOFO will contribute to general knowledge of low-income households’ experiences with alternative rent policies that are intended to promote self-sufficiency. The research proposal must describe how such knowledge will contribute to housing assistance policy that is designed to promote greater self-sufficiency for assisted households, whether such policy is developed by HUD, housing authorities, or other entities.

Eligible activities include all research, regulatory, and project management activities that contribute to meeting the NOFO objectives and research needs at a high-quality level, and specifically to complete the funded research. Eligible activities include, but are not necessarily limited to the following:

  • All research activities required to complete the funded research, from the articulation of research questions (including literature reviewing) through the development of research design, data collection and analysis plans, to the analysis of data, and finally including the writing of publication-quality research reports and formal presentations and briefings on findings
  • Regular communication with HUD staff on all project deliverables, as required by HUD’s substantial involvement under the cooperative agreement
  • Consulting with experts on any aspect of the research as needed to bring expertise to enhance the research team’s knowledge in critical areas
  • Meeting regulatory requirements for research such as the engagement of an Institutional Review Board to review and approve data collection instruments and Informed Consent materials for study participants
  • Project management activities, including required project management tools (Opening Meeting, Management and Work Plan and Budget, Quality Control Plan, and Quarterly Progress Reports) and regular communication with HUD staff for monitoring purposes
  • Travel to study locations where the STRD is being implemented
  • Incentive payments to study respondents as a token of appreciation for their time.
  • Dissemination of research findings to study participants
