The Council was awarded the Innovation in Crime Mapping award at the recent Crime Mapping conference in Miami held by the National Institute of Justice (Part of the US Dept of Justice).   The winning map showed how Urban Strategies Council analyzed both neighborhood housing and foreclosure trends and local crime patterns when considering how to implement our Community Land Trust as a strategy for neighborhood stabilization.
