Every New Year brings an opportunity to reflect on past success and new possibilities. So before we get too caught up in 2020, we wanted to give you a glimpse into some of what the Center for Community Investment at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy achieved in 2019 with your partnership and support.
Last year, we saw participants in our three programs—Accelerating Investments in Healthy Communities (AIHC), Connect Capital, and the Fulcrum Fellowship—make meaningful strides in the fight to help communities overcome disinvestment and achieve their environmental, social, and economic priorities. Together, these efforts are helping advance equity and opportunity for people who have not had them. And the progress that's been made thus far is reinforcing our sense that change is possible. In our latest Year in Review, we highlight a handful of these inspiring stories to give you a sense of the diversity of regions, issues, and approaches we are seeing across the country.
