Healthy Communities

Getting Communities Ready for What’s Next

Communities large and small must adapt and focus on building resilient places, shaping healthy social and economic systems, growing jobs, and moving people around. We are working with communities, businesses and neighborhoods living through climate change and pandemic/post-pandemic realities to identify and advance transformational and recovery projects, and to position those projects for funding.
