Living Cities Inc.: The National Community Development Initiative
New York, New York
The philanthropic, corporate, and public-sector partnership was established to bring community-development opportunities and the financial power of mainstream markets to urban neighborhoods and residents. Funding helps to underwrite the final-year activities of the Talent Dividend Prize competition, which awards $1 million to the city that achieves the greatest increase in the number of college degrees granted per 1,000 residents over a three-year period.
