Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Low-income communities and communities of color have faced years of structural discrimination in public policies and programs. Disinvestment, redlining, inequitable distribution of resources, and ongoing racial animus continue to plague many places and result in poor, unsafe, and unaffordable housing, lack of jobs or access to work, ineffective schools, inequitable access to health care, among other outcomes of the long history of discrimination

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To strengthen the work of advocates, professionals, policymakers, funders, investors, and others working to address these issue by reporting on best practices and new, effective programs.

Since 1975, we have been the original voice for community development, supporting the diverse field of organizations working in low-income communities to create positive change.

We have an accomplished staff of writers and editors who are also fully engaged in the broad field of community development. We launched our print publication in 1975, we were one of the first social justice publication on the website in 1994, and began a weekly e-newsletter in 2011.

Over the years, our work has lain the ground of the increased popularity of community land trusts to preserve affordable housing, helped launch the movement of nonprofits to purchase nonperforming mortgages in low-income communities to preserve homeownership, and introduced to the community development field ways in which to work with health care institutions to address the social determinants of health.
