Webinar | Lessons from ‘Turning the Corner’: Monitoring Neighborhood Change to Prevent Displacement

May 2, 2019 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm America/New York Timezone

Sponsored by the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership and the Federal Reserve-Philanthropy Initiative

Join us at 1 p.m. ET May 2 for a webinar that will share key takeaways and insights on Turning the Corner: Monitoring Neighborhood Change to Prevent Displacement.

Launched in January 2016, Turning the Corner: Monitoring Neighborhood Change to Prevent Displacement piloted a local research model in five cities to monitor change in neighborhoods to prevent gentrification-related displacement and support inclusive revitalization efforts. Cities included Buffalo, Detroit, Milwaukee, Phoenix, and the Twin Cities. Drawing from two forthcoming briefs, researchers from the Urban Institute will highlight key takeaways based on the five sites’ projects and present additional insights related to public safety and small businesses. There will be time for participants to ask questions and offer comments based on their own local experiences.

The Turning the Corner project was incubated by the Federal Reserve-Philanthropy Initiative, a collaboration between TFN’s Restoring Prosperity in Older Industrial Cities working group  and several Federal Reserve district banks, in response to concerns about displacement in cities with recovering and moderate-strength housing markets. Urban Institute’s National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership managed the project and synthesized lessons across the sites. Local teams in the five sites conducted research and engagement in two to four focus neighborhoods.
