Grants to this Grantee
for the creation of a center focused on economic aspects of reproductive rights for women
This grant will support the Center on the Economics of Reproductive Health at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. The center advances public understanding of the link between access to reproductive health care and women’s long-term economic security and well-being by conducting original research and policy analysis at the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, and reproductive health. This understanding strengthens support for policies and services that improve economic outcomes and educational and employment opportunities for all women. (Strategy: U.S. Reproductive Health)
for general operating support
The Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) advances reproductive rights and economic opportunity for women through research and advocacy. IWPR builds evidence to shape policies that grow women’s power and influence, close inequality gaps, and improve the economic well-being of families. (Substrategy: Advocacy)
for a study on community college career pathways and reproductive health
This supplemental grant will help the Institute for Women’s Policy Research conduct a process to plan for a potential project to improve access to reproductive health services for community college students so they can make informed decisions about childbearing, complete postsecondary education, and reach a more secure economic future. The institute will work with its learning community — made up of colleges, communities, practitioners, philanthropists, and policymakers — to design a project that implements and assesses the impact of promising practices, policy strategies, and program models that can help students access the reproductive health care they need.
