|Revitalizing Older Cities|
Some urban and metropolitan areas throughout the Northeast and Midwest have enjoyed stable population growth and rich economic prosperity throughout recent history. However, many of the region's historic cities - critical centers of industry, transportation, and American ingenuity - are suffering from dramatic reductions in population, traditional employment opportunities, and economic investment.
The Northeast-Midwest Institute began its Revitalizing Older Cities Initiative in 2007. The Initiative draws strategically on long-standing Institute policy expertise in brownfields, urban food availability and nutrition, energy efficiency and affordability, manufacturing revitalization, environmental restoration, transportation and infrastructure, housing, livable communities, and economic development.
Recent and current projects:
Transportation & Climate
Efficient Energy Generation
Support for the Institute’s Urban Revitalization work is generally project-specific. Past funds have been provided by the Great Lakes Protection Fund, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Surdna Foundation, and the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation.
