This report shows that community-controlled development corporations have sharply increased their ability to carry out physical and human development programs in poor urban neighborhoods. These gains have come about through revolution in local institutional practice during the 1990s, involving unprecedented collaborations among government, private foundations, and corporations.

 

These entities have invested in real estate projects, organizational development, and community leadership in ways that create many and enduring links between community-based organizations and sources of money, expertise, and political influence. These new systems rely heavily on community development "intermediaries" that connect cities and their neighborhoods to national sources of support.
