Kristin Seefeldt"The funds from the PSC small grant that I received were critical in helping me continue a project that has ended up being quite timely, given the recession. In 2006, Helen Levy and I started interviewing a sample of low-income women in Detroit to learn more about how poor families managed economically during an economic downturn. At that time, only Michigan was experiencing difficulties, although soon the rest of the country followed suit. I continued on with the study and have interviewed the women in the sample yearly since 2006. I used data from this study for two of my three dissertation papers."
