This is a project description for the Turning the Corner project, which pilots a research model that monitors neighborhood change, drives informed government action, and supports displacement prevention and inclusive revitalization. Working in four to six cities, the project focuses on developing an understanding of neighborhood dynamics within the context of recovering and moderate housing markets. It is a project of the Urban Institute’s National Neighborhood Indicator Partnership (NNIP), the Funders’ Network’s Federal Reserve-Philanthropy Initiative, and the Kresge Foundation.

Local coalitions in Buffalo, Detroit, Milwaukee, Phoenix, and Twin Cities are participating in the project. Data Driven Detroit also engaged in the design and incubation of the project.
