The Russell Sage Foundation, in collaboration with the Economic Mobility and Opportunity program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has awarded 18 grants to emerging scholars in the fourth round of the Pipeline Grants Competition. This initiative aims to support early-career scholars who are underrepresented in the social sciences and promote diversity in various aspects.
Dr. Hsu's study on the impact of eviction moratoriums on eviction filings in 2020 is particularly relevant because the COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected communities of color, who are more likely to experience housing insecurity and eviction. This study will not only shed light on the effectiveness of eviction moratorium policies during the pandemic but also their potential to address racial disparities in housing access and stability. By examining the impact of eviction moratoria on different racial and ethnic groups, Dr. Hsu's research could provide valuable insights into how to address racial inequality in housing policy more broadly.
