Launched in January 2016, this project pilots a research model that monitors neighborhood change, drives informed government action, and supports displacement prevention and inclusive revitalization. Local teams in Buffalo, Detroit, Milwaukee, Phoenix, and Twin Cities conducted independent research to understand neighborhood change and displacement risk in their communities. The Urban Institute, funded by the Kresge Foundation, synthesized lessons across the five cities. For more information, see the cross-site study here.
This study is part of a larger national effort titled Turning the Corner: Monitoring Neighborhood Change for Action, a project guided by the Urban Institute’s National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership and the Funders’ Network Federal Reserve-Philanthropy Initiative.
