Place-Based Initiatives

Place-Based Initiatives

Place-Based initiatives are long-term commitments to specific jurisdictions (cities, towns, or neighborhoods) that strive to achieve better results for disadvantaged children, youth, families and seniors. In these places, we work closely with communities, organizations and systems to identify specific results, indicators and strategies that are aligned with our mission. The aim is to implement, over time, a set of comprehensive and integrated investments that reinforce each other. A key characteristic of this work is its emphasis on collaborative local activities.
