Neighborhood Revitalization in Columbus, OH

Working as a consultant to the Columbus Foundation, the Institute has aided the foundation in designing its neighborhood revitalization strategy for Columbus, Ohio. In addition, the strategies and recommendations produced by the Institute have informed the local United Way’s effort to redesign its neighborhood revitalization program. Ideally, these two initiatives will direct significant funds into neighborhood revitalization in Columbus’s marginalized communities.
