We are a national nonprofit with a mission to foster strong, equitable communities where vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties are transformed into assets for neighbors and neighborhoods. We are former practitioners and policymakers who understand that today’s neighborhoods have been shaped by decades of unjust and racist land use and financing policies—and we are driven by the promise of safe, healthy, resilient, and inclusive neighborhoods that provide opportunity and dignity for all.
Community Progress is highly regarded as the nation’s leading resource for urban, suburban, and rural communities seeking to equitably address the full cycle of property revitalization. We help communities access policies, tools, and resources to transform problem properties. We have provided customized, expert guidance to more than 300 communities in over 35 states and reached tens of thousands across the United States with free educational programming.
