Reporting on What Works

We continue to expand the tool kit for city leaders and economic development professionals by connecting them to what’s working—the most effective strategies and best practices on inner city economic development from across the country—through our robust communications platform. Cities across the country have a lot to be proud of. We want to share their successful initiatives as broadly as possible to transform all inner cities.

Our case studies highlight innovative projects from across the U.S. that are uniting public, private and nonprofit sectors to accommodate growth and ignite economic development in our inner cities. They are one of our most popular resources.

Our blog provides commentary from leaders and practitioners from both within and outside of ICIC on issues relevant to our research and to our urban business initiatives.

Interested in visual information? Our engaging Inner City in Focus infographic series provides graphic representations of our leading-edge research.
