Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

University of Minnesota

Minneapolis, Minnesota



The Institute on Metropolitan Opportunity at the University of Minnesota investigates the ways that laws, policies and practices affect development patterns in U.S. metropolitan regions, with a focus on the growing social and economic disparities within these areas. This grant enables the institute to host a National Summit for Civil Rights, codevelop a next-generation civil rights strategy, and build on its field-leading research to influence policy makers and to create better opportunities for people with low income in America’s cities.
