Virtual Event: Using the Capital for Communities Scorecard to Boost Social Impact and Equity – Oct 31

Posted by Urban Institute on October 25, 2022

The need for capital to support development in many communities is pressing. Most cities and regions include neighborhoods that lack investment and face growing racial disparities in access to jobs, amenities, and affordable housing. Recent federal investments in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, American Rescue Plan Act, and Inflation Reduction Act are providing unprecedented new funding to local and state governments to upgrade and expand infrastructure, build new housing, create jobs, support local businesses, and move toward a more sustainable and resilient future. This new funding could change American communities for the better, but without careful planning and alignment with community goals, it could exacerbate inequities.

During this event, participants will demonstrate how private developers, mission-driven investors, governments, and nonprofit organizations can use the Urban Institute’s new Capital for Communities Scorecard to assess whether proposed projects align with community priorities and contribute to local social impact.

This event will take place on Monday, October 31, at 12 PM ET.
