Investment, Growth, and Equity in the DC Region: Where Are We, and Where Are We Heading?

The DC area’s growing population has brought increased investment, but that investment and its related benefits have not been evenly distributed across the region. And even before the pandemic’s hit to the local economy, investment expansion stalled, making the region’s future growth uncertain.

Join us for a discussion on recent investment trends into the DC region and how place-based and people-based community development policy tools can support both growth and equity.
