From Policy to Progress: Partnering to Create Equitable Community Development 

The Maxine Goodman Levin School of Urban Affairs is pleased to serve as Community Partner for an upcoming forum hosted by the City Club of Cleveland, “From Policy to Progress: Partnering to Create Equitable Community Development” on Friday, September 24, 2021 from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm.
The influx of federal funds amid the coronavirus pandemic has reminded us of the power of a robust response to crisis, but funding is just one way government, policymakers, philanthropists, and other organizations can influence how communities evolve. Thoughtful policy implemented well in our regions and communities can be the determining factor in successful, equitable community development. 
Over the last nine months, we've been joining with the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy to celebrate their 75th anniversary with a series of forums exploring the specific challenges facing legacy cities, the power of philanthropy to spur investment, and the importance of creating equity in waterfront access. 
Join Lincoln Institute board member and President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta Dr. Raphael Bostic and Lincoln Institute President Dr. George W. McCarthy in a conversation about the power of policy and collaboration to solve some of the biggest challenges we face. 
Production and distribution of City Club forums in partnership with Ideastream Public Media is generously provided by PNC and the United Black Fund.
