Former Dutch minister Vogelaar started a policy of additional funding for 40 neighborhoods. This project aims to estimate the effects of these policies by comparing the developments in these neighborhoods on a large range of outcomes with the developments in neighborhoods that just failed to be included in the set of 40. A background document has been written on the selection of neighborhoods, previous policies, the plans on spending the new funds and pretrends in the experiment and control neighborhoods. In addition, data on educational outcomes are collected.
