Today systemic inequities are holding communities back.
Place-based initiatives offer a path to better outcomes for people, children, and families – bringing together public, private, and nonprofit organizations with community members to address systemic challenges and break down barriers to opportunity.
What are place-based initiatives?
Place-based initiatives bring together diverse community stakeholders to work across systems like education, health, and economic development to find new ways to spur opportunity and increase equity.
How do place-based initiatives work?
Although place-based initiatives should reflect the unique community they serve, there are six Collective Capacities that support initiatives in achieving broad-based, population-level change.
