A Johns Hopkins initiative has grant money available for research projects that take a cross-disciplinary approach to urban policies and issues.
The 21st Century Cities program has seven grants available of about $35,000 each, according to the JHU Hub. The projects must have Johns Hopkins faculty members acting as leads, but also must include a community organization or business.
The three target areas are:
- Mixed-income development
- Safe and healthy neighborhoods
- Economic opportunity and inclusion
As an example, The Hub article pointed to a project from Tamás Budavári and graduate student Philip Garboden. They’re working with Baltimore Housing to model a spatial map of the city’s housing stock.
