about the partnership

The Shared Prosperity Partnership—a collaboration of The Kresge Foundation, the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program, the Urban Institute, and Living Cities—convenes local leaders in select communities across the United States to discuss challenges to inclusive growth and provide data, research, and access to national experts, networks, and financial resources.

Nationally, the Partnership elevates promising models through publications, public forums, and a national summit to spark dialogue among practitioners and support evidence-based policy at the state and national levels.

OUR THREE GOALS

ENGAGE

with cities to better understand the most pressing challenges they are facing to building a more inclusive economy.

Work

with local leaders to collaboratively determine if, where, and how the Shared Prosperity Partnership can provide meaningful support to advance shared prosperity.

Elevate

what we learn by sharing insights with other leaders, both locally and nationally, to inform the broader field of urban practice.
