This report is part of a larger collaboration between the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) and the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA). It aims to inform communityrevitalization in the Twin Cities by analyzing neighborhood conditions and contributions to regional disparities between whites and other racial and ethnic groups. The report compares four Buildiing Sustainable Communities neighborhoods: Central Corridor and Eastside St. Paul, North and South Minneapolis to St. Paul along a series of economic and community health indicators. It illustrates the degree to which closing the gap between whites and people of color in the four study areas would contribute to narrowing disparities within the cities as a whole.
