Our Approach

We work with community-based organizations, small businesses, and the public sector to develop innovative strategies toward an equitable and sustainable NYC.

Our work is grounded in four core values: Equity, Sustainability, Local Knowledge, and Diverse Economy.
Our programs integrate advocacy, research, and service toward a more sustainable, equitable NYC.
We work with a diverse range of partners from the non-profit, private, and public sectors.
Our work leverages the unique resources of a university and is informed by our on-the-ground experience in low- and moderate-income communities.
