Neighborhoods, cities, and metros
Where people live influences their quality of life and access to opportunity. Urban analyzes local needs and policies on a range of community issues, informs strategies to prevent displacement, and shares evidence-based practices to further racial and economic equity in communities. Government agencies, practitioners, community-based organizations, and residents collaborate with Urban to foster vibrant, inclusive regions, cities, and neighborhoods.
