Preventing Post-COVID-19 Vacancy

Proactively Serving Residents, Neighborhoods, and Municipalities

When events like the COVID-19 pandemic and the Great Recession impact the lives of Americans, the need for equity and access to expert strategies for preventing vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties grows exponentially. While personal and public health remain a top priority, for the leaders who have the capacity to look ahead, the Center for Community Progress COVID-19 Resource Center will provide weekly resources and updates for neighborhoods in need.
