The Moving to Opportunity for Fair Housing Demonstration Project (MTO) is designed to measure the impacts of a change in neighborhood on the employment, income, educational achievement, and social well-being of poor families. Its primary focus is on the poverty rates of "destination" and "sending" neighborhoods. Sending neighborhoods from which participants are selected must have at least 40 percent of the population living in poverty. Destination neighborhoods to which participants are relocated, must have no more than 10 percent of the population living in poverty. Because of the design of the MTO project, it is important to consider the relationship between neighborhood characteristics, poverty, and child and youth outcomes.
