Kathryn Pettit, Principal Research Associate and Co-director of NNIP

The nonprofit Urban Institute is dedicated to elevating the debate on social and economic policy. For nearly five decades, Urban scholars have conducted research and offered evidence-based solutions that improve lives and strengthen communities across a rapidly urbanizing world. Their objective research helps expand opportunities for all, reduce hardship among the most vulnerable, and strengthen the effectiveness of the public sector. The Urban Institute acts as coordinator of NNIP, providing technical assistance to the partners, processing national data sets for local use, and facilitating the sharing of tools and lessons learned among the partners.
