J.  Civic Infrastructure and the Financing of Community 

[posted from LISC e-newsletter]

Civic Infrastructure and the Financing of Community Development, 
a new Brookings Institution study written by William Bogart, 
examines the link between community development organizations 
and the vitality of community development itself. Using case 
studies from three major cities, the paper indicates that those with 
the strongest and most diverse network of nonprofit community 
development organizations realize greater private sector 
participation. The result is fewer subsidies per project, leading to 
more community development activity. To download this paper,
