Crowd waiting to cross a street 

The Shared Prosperity Partnership—a collaboration of the Urban Institute, The Kresge Foundation, and the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program—convenes local leaders in select communities across the United States to discuss challenges to inclusive growth and provide data, research, and access to national experts, networks, and financial resources.

Nationally, the Partnership elevates promising models through publications, public forums, and peer learning opportunities to spark dialogue among practitioners and support evidence-based policy at the local and national levels. At a time of national challenge, the Shared Prosperity Partnership leverages the innovative work of local leaders across the United States to offer a hopeful vision for American civil society, economic competitiveness, and individual well-being
