Alexander von Hoffman

Equitable development is a new form of community development and urban planning aimed at revitalizing disinvested communities and ensuring that all residents of urban places can shape urban development and benefit from economic growth in an equitable fashion.This report analyzes three current equitable development campaigns – in Washington, D.C.; Detroit, Michigan; and Phoenix, Arizona – involving nonprofit community development financial institutions (CDFIs) that received awards from JPMorgan Chase & Co. as part of its Partnerships for Raising Opportunity in Neighborhoods (PRO Neighborhoods) program.
