State and local policy is critical to the work that local organizations and nonprofits do to advance equitable outcomes for their communities. These programs and policies often determine the level of public resources available to these entities, and help shape the broader landscape of housing affordability, job quality, and a host of other issues from policing to public health. Acknowledging this reality, LISC fielded and analyzed a survey that sought to identify the most promising state and local policies that advance equitable and inclusive outcomes within the field of community development.
