We are former practitioners and policymakers who understand that today’s neighborhoods have been shaped by decades of unjust policies—and we are driven by the promise of safe, healthy, resilient, and inclusive neighborhoods that provide opportunity and dignity for all.
The expertise and passion of our staff is unmatched, and Community Progress is highly regarded as the nation’s leading resource for urban, suburban, and rural communities seeking to equitably address the full cycle of property revitalization.
In all our work, we seek to ensure that all communities have the policies, tools, and resources they need to transform vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties. Our state-of-the-art technical assistance has been provided to more than 300 communities in over 35 states and our educational programming has reached tens of thousands across the United States.
