Dear Comm-Org folks:

I am interested in finding some good write-ups of governments (local, 
state and/or federal) in the field of community development.  What roles 
are governments playing now?  How are those changing?  How has the Obama 
administration changed the federal role (if at all). How has the fiscal 
crisis afflicting so many state and local governments played out in 
community development (yes, there's less money -- but is there more to 
the story than just that?).  So any reports or articles or thoughts that 
people have would certainly be helpful.

thanks, James
