Research You Can Use

Since its launch, the Network has produced reports and guides to shed light on the challenges cities are facing and highlight strategies to address them successfully. Ranging from creating inclusive broadband policies to an in-depth look at the state of California’s distressed communities, these reports have provided critical research and insight for local leaders and stakeholders around the country.

Striking a (Local) Grand Bargain

In Striking a (Local) Grand Bargain, the Network, NYU Wagner, and the Urban Institute illustrate that while cities can benefit from relationships with local anchor institutions, the full potential of these partnerships is often not realized because of mistrust, half-starts and half-realized results. A new grand bargain with anchor institutions based on shared interests is the path forward for American cities in the 21st century.
