This report provides information about the launch of a three-year evaluation of promising approaches to addressing food and housing insecurity by the Wisconsin HOPE Lab. The researchers plan to work with community college leaders in Boston, Houston, and Tacoma, Washington, to test, refine, and scale efforts to improve the well-being of students and increase their chances of earning degrees. The three programs under evaluation are Meal Vouchers at Bunker Hill Community College, Food Scholarships at Houston Community College, and Housing Vouchers at Tacoma Community College. All three programs were developed by community colleges and their partners based on their local needs, resources, and opportunities. (author abstract modified)
