The EDSRG program is administered by the Office of University Partnerships under the Assistant Secretary for Policy Development and Research (PD&R). This Office also administers PD&R's other grant programs for academics.

The EDSRG Program was created as a means of expanding the number of researchers conducting research on subjects of interest to HUD. Students, who are in the early stages of their doctoral studies, have 15 months to complete a major research study. Grants can be up to $15,000 each.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance number for this program is 14.517.
