At Robin Hood’s No City Limits: Reimagining the Poverty Fight 2019 conference in Manhattan, The Robin Hood Foundation announced an ambitious new four-year $25 million initiative to develop sustainable paths to opportunity for low-income families in five U.S. communities: New York, Chicago, Baltimore, the San Francisco Bay area and Northeast Pennsylvania. The program, called Mobility Learning and Action Bets, or Mobility LABs, marks a new strategic pivot for the philanthropy, which previously has been focused on New York.

We spoke with the heads of two of the major national foundations backing the initiative: Rachel Garbow Monroe, president and CEO of The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, and Daniel Lurie, CEO and founder of Tipping Point.
