About this grant

This grant will enable the Center for American Progress to conduct an external evaluation of grantmaking activities under the Mott Foundation’s income security portfolio between 2000 and 2007. This review will assess progress, relative to baseline, on the outcomes sought for the grantmaking portfolio. In addition to progress, the final evaluation report will show examples of how the income security grantmaking strategies have been expanded in the field, how the Foundation’s work to inform policy, improve practice, and evaluate promising strategies influenced these efforts, and what impact the Foundation’s investment in these strategies had on poverty alleviation. The Center for American Progress is a national think tank dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through ideas and action.
