The Strong Local Economies Program provides early support for communities that seek to increase access to opportunity for all residents to build their wealth in a sustainable manner.
We fund two key related lines of work:
The Strong Local Economies Program aims to help create communities of opportunity that offer good jobs within reach for low- and moderate-income residents and provide sustainable development solutions that enable people to easily travel between their homes and jobs, schools and day-to-day services. Communities of opportunity include thriving businesses that offer good jobs within reach of diverse residents, and incorporate sustainable and affordable transportation and development solutions.
The Strong Local Economies Program aims to create strong and sustainable local economies that include a diversity of vibrant businesses and sectors, improving residents’ livelihood and access to quality jobs and training within a region.
