The Center for the Study of Welfare Policy (CSWP) was an interdisciplinary research institute established in 1969 at the School of Social Service Administration (SSA) at the University of Chicago. The CSWP evaluated contemporary welfare policy and proposed new approaches to social problems related to health care, education, poverty, the elderly, children and families. In 1979, the CSWP established an office in Washington, D.C. in addition to its base at the University of Chicago. The Center received substantial funding from the Department for Health, Education and Welfare (DHEW), and other private and public sources. The collection comprises the administrative records of the CSWP and its affiliated scholars and projects, as well as the Center's correspondence and grants with DHEW, the records of the Social Service Delivery Project (SSDP) and research conducted by CSWP scholars and outside researchers in the field of social welfare policy.
