Substantive Review of the Indianapolis Community Development Delivery system

Local civic leaders across sectors recognize the need to coordinate public, private, and philanthropic investments to have a strategic and holistic impact in local communities. In 2013, the Institute examined the system and processes through which public, private, and philanthropic actors use their resources to advance physical revitalization in Marion County. In addition to extensive research of current academic and practitioner research around national best practices, staff conducted more than 20 key informant interviews with various stakeholders in the current community development system. The current practices and possible changes are best considered when we understand our local approaches to community development as well as the federal context within which the Indianapolis system operates.
