    Hosted by the Poverty and Race Research Action Council

    Both HUD and the Department of Education are working hard to improve resources and outcomes in low income, racially isolated communities and schools. But both agencies also share a mandate to expand low income families’ access to racially and economically integrated schools and communities. PRRAC convened officials from the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Education to explore ways in which the two agencies might work collaboratively to advance school and housing integration, recognizing that these two systems interact in highly interdependent ways.
