Table of Contents

This timely book takes a wide-angled look at how the field of community development is evolving in an era of reduced resources, changing priorities, privatization, competition, and performance management at the federal, state, and local government levels, as well as for non-profits and private sector entities. It shows how community development organizations and programs are offering many new services, entering into new partnerships, developing extensive networks, and attracting new and alternative sources of funding - and how, in the process, these organizations are becoming more innovative, leaner in their operations, more competitive, and much more effective than ever before.Students, researchers, and policy-makers will all appreciate the numerous policy examples from the local, state, and federal levels, including a wide range of developments in housing, transportation, smart growth, education, and crime prevention. "Reengineering Community Development for the 21st Century" is an invaluable source for insights into the latest developments in community development financing and performance management.
