CCI: The First Five Years

The Center for Community Investment, a 10-year initiative of the Lincoln Institute for Land Policy, is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year. Halfway through our lifespan, we've learned a lot more about how community leaders can use the capital absorption framework to empower residents and local organizations, engage anchor institutions, scale up development to the level their communities need, access new funding sources, and secure the resources (from land and money to skills and relationships) they need. In our five-year review, we introduce you to some of the core principles of our approach along with the people we’ve worked with, the ways they’ve changed how they do things, and what they’ve accomplished over the last five years.
