THE OPPORTUNITY PROJECT: ACCESS TO CHILDCARE AND TRANSPORTATION is the result of a collaboration RISE3 joined in 2016, launched by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy to use open data in order to expand access to opportunity. The Opportunity Project will release two research reports examining whether and how race, economic status and geographic location affect access to transportation and child care options, and the relative time and money spent to use them. With funding from the BC Offices of the Provost and the Vice Provost for Research, and at the invitation of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the RISE3 team used multiple federal data sets to take a look at the intersection of race, place and income and how they affect these core family resources. The symposium will combine federal, state and local-level discussions about child care and transportation with release of new data.
