Policy Areas Democracy & Governance, Economic Justice
This report examines how local communities can partner with anchor institutions to establish progressive agendas for community and economic development. Anchor institutions -like hospitals, universities, or airports-are typically the largest employers within a community, and their place-based capital investments make them key stakeholders in the community within which they are based. Partnerships with these institutions are underutilized by local governments across the nation.
