Ruby Mendenhall wins grant from the City of Chicago!

Ruby Mendenhall has won a grant to evaluate a pilot project that involves giving low and moderate-income families advance payments of their Earned Income Tax Credit. The invitation from the city to submit a proposal came after Ruby gave an invited talk about her research on the EITC at the University of Chicago (Employment Instability policy forum). Several policy makers from Rahm Emmanuel’s office were in attendance. She worked with a great interdisciplinary team at Illinois on a very tight turn around time, and the $146,000 proposal was selected. Please join in congratulating Ruby on her success!
