This policy guide looks deeply at the following four principles: the integration of strategies that support people while improving places; the reduction of disparities between neighborhoods, localities, and across regions; promotion of double bottom line investments that offer financial return to investors and economic and social benefits to residents; and full and meaningful community voice, participation, and leadership.
