Federal policies to support neighborhood opportunity and inclusion for families

The Urban Institute’s Opportunity for All project recently published a series of briefs on improving opportunity and inclusion in neighborhoods to promote the well-being of families and their children. In the brief “Creating Places of Opportunity for All,” experts and community leaders use a place-based framework to present federal policy strategies for addressing the equity gaps that racist policies have created and perpetuated. In particular, authors call for policy changes to address racial and income segregation such as investing in assts in distressed neighborhoods, preserving affordable housing, preventing displacement brought on by revitalization or market pressures, and removing barriers to expand access to well-resourced neighborhoods. #racialequity
