Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

One Million Degrees

Chicago, Illinois



One Million Degrees is dedicated to providing comprehensive supports to low-income, highly motivated community college students to help them succeed in school, in work, and in life. This grant will support a partnership between One Million Degrees and the Chicago Housing Authority to increase the number of public housing clients succeeding at City Colleges of Chicago. OMD will help the Housing Authority build greater capacity to recruit clients into a Housing Authority-funded scholarship program, provide wraparound services to a subset of participants, and rigorously evaluate both sets of supports in partnership with an external evaluator.
