ICYFP partners with various organizations and institutions in research collaboration. 

Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, Ohio State University

At the Kirwan Institute, researchers use cutting-edge technology and a multi-disciplinary approach to understand the reasons behind (and solutions to) racial and ethnic disparities in the United States. The Kirwan Institute currently partners with ICYFP on the Project, using advanced Geographic Information Systems mapping techniques to develop a geography of opportunity index for children in the United States.
