Economic Self-Sufficiency Policy Research Institute
Prior to the creation of the Center for Population, Inequality, and Policy, the Economic Self-Sufficiency Policy Research Institute studied policies and programs designed to support economic self-sufficiency. ESSPRI brought together the talents and contributions of researchers at UC Irvine, the UC system, and the national research community in a network committed to objective, high-quality research. With a focus on policy impact at the state and local levels, ESSPRI engaged the policy community to improve policy. The activities of ESSPRI ended in 2019, but the research interests continue under the newly formed Center for Population, Inequality, and Policy, which you can visit here.
