The Center on Philanthropy & Public Policy and the Sol Price Center for Social Innovation held a national conversation on the current state of place-based initiatives on December 4th and 5th, 2014. The day-and-a-half event was the culmination of a year-long inquiry into philanthropic and public sector initiatives that address geographically-concentrated poverty.
The forum included plenaries with national experts, focused concurrent sessions to make informed decisions, and ample opportunities for networking.
In anticipation of the conference, a monograph was published to summarize the year long inquiry into the state of place-based initiatives. Read “Place-Based Initiatives in the Context of Public Policy and the Market: Moving to Higher Ground” here.
