Catalyzing Neighborhood Investment: Webinar Registration

The conditions of a neighborhood affect the ability of a household to create wealth. Economic mobility is inextricably tied to proximity to job centers, transportation facilities and commercial enterprise, as well as quality-of-life necessities such as grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, parks and cultural institutions.

This webinar will focus on the need for, and strategies to spark, neighborhood investment that can create the necessary conditions and building blocks to make our communities and region places of opportunity for everyone.
