Competition To Conduct Analysis of HUD’s Randomized Evaluation Data

Request for Proposals: Moving to Opportunity and Family Options Studies

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announces a new competition for access to data from two important randomized social experiments, the Moving to Opportunity for Fair Housing (MTO) demonstration program and the Family Options Study (FOS). HUD has partnered with the U.S. Census Bureau to make these experimental data more accessible to qualified researchers and more readily matched with other data, including from the Census Bureau’s Administrative Data Inventory (, at 1 of 25 Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (RDCs). This competition supports greater evidence building on (1) the impact of neighborhoods on the lives of low-income families with children and (2) the impact of housing and services interventions for families with children experiencing homelessness.
