Jabbari awarded $512,000 grant from William T. Grant Foundation


Jason Jabbari, research assistant professor with the Social Policy Institute (SPI) at Washington University in St. Louis, received a $512,000 grant from The William T. Grant Foundation to understand if and how the Choice Neighborhood Initiative (CNI) reduces racial inequalities in academic outcomes for children and youth.

The project is a research-practice collaboration between SPI and Urban Strategies Inc., the largest implementation partner for the CNI providing wrap-around supports to CNI families, as well as Saint Louis Public Schools, Shelby County Schools, Seeding Success, and Baltimore City Public Schools.
