    Funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, the Nittoli Practitioner Fellowship pairs leading practitioners with senior researchers at the Urban Institute to advance evidence-based solutions and alleviate inequality. Over three years, the fellowship will have three fellows, all of whom address one or more dimension of inequality in their communities and beyond.

    For the fellowship’s inaugural year, Urban chose Manmeet Kaur, founder and executive director of City Health Works, a Harlem-based community health organization that aims to create healthier and stronger neighborhoods in Upper Manhattan and reduce health care costs through health coaching and care coordination.

    For 2018, Urban selected Ricki Granetz Lowitz, cofounder and CEO of the national nonprofit Working Credit NFP, as the second fellow. Working Credit NFP partners with employers to provide tools and information that advance employees’ financial circumstances.
