By promoting inventive and actionable ideas, the Partnership aims to strengthen existing efforts and inform urban policy and practice.

New Policy Briefs

State Policies to Promote Shared Prosperity in Cities: The United States continues to be a country of tremendous economic opportunity, but this opportunity is not shared equally among residents. Even in the nation’s most successful cities, the failure to distribute these benefits more evenly has resulted in stark racial and economic disparities. This new series of policy briefs explores how states are natural partners for city and regional leaders, and they can position their cities and communities for success.
