Shared Prosperity Partnership

Group of people waiting to cross street

The Shared Prosperity Partnership—a collaboration of The Urban Institute, The Kresge Foundation, the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program, and Living Cities—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 a national summit to spark dialogue among practitioners and support evidence-based policy at the state and national levels.

The Partnership is focused on three primary goals:

  • Engaging with cities to better understand the most pressing challenges to building a more inclusive economy;
  • Working with local leaders to collaboratively determine if, where, and how the Shared Prosperity Partnership can provide meaningful support to advance shared prosperity;
  • Elevating what we learn by sharing insights with other leaders, both locally and nationally, to inform broader urban practice.
