Community Investments: Vol. 23 No. 1: Spring 2011.
Community Development in Practice
(pdf, 5.20 mb)
This issue of Community Investments focuses on community development practice – what are some emerging ideas for programs and policies that can help lower-income communities rebuild after the recession, and what do we know about their effectiveness? The issue profiles two new efforts to improve consumers’ financial decisions, including a lottery-based savings account for youth and a nonprofit check cashing outlet. It also highlights new research on shared equity homeownership programs, local strategies for responding to investor purchases of distressed properties, and the early implementation of the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.
