In her new book Resilience for All: Striving for Equity through Community-Driven Design, author Barbara Brown Wilson seeks to confront the failings of traditional planning and design practices in vulnerable low-income communities.

While others have pursued landscape-based solutions to this issue -- think community gardens -- Brown suggests there is a larger role for landscape. Inadequate or substandard infrastructure in low-income and minority communities can prevent people from using active transportation.

It can also make walking and bicycling unsafe for those who do rely on these modes to get around, leading to higher incidences of collisions involving pedestrians and cyclists. In order to improve health in this country, the health sector must work closely with those who plan and build communities, especially the community development and finance organizations that work in low-income neighborhoods to build child care centers, schools, grocery stores, community health clinics, and affordable housing.

Opportunity Zones are tax incentives to encourage those with capital gains to invest in low-income and undercapitalized communities. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act included a new federal incentive—Opportunity Zones—meant to spur investment in undercapitalized communities.

Academics and policy makers have long considered an adequate supply of infrastructure services to be essential for economic development. This paper reviews recent theoretical and empirical literature on the effects of infrastructure development on growth and income distribution.

Infrastructure is critical, as it is the means by which other services are accessed, including health, education, employment, etc.

In his book Opportunity Investing, Jim White does the right thing by smartly and carefully explaining the financial and social benefits of investing in Opportunity Zones.

White deftly explains an inventive solution to revitalizing distressed communities and directing necessary funds to health care and education. Sen. Tim Scott said Monday that his amendment aims to uplift communities in crisis without creating another government agency or program.

It was Foxx’s second speech in as many days about how federal infrastructure projects contribute to inequality and poverty, and how the agency wants to make up for it now.

On the one hand, the lack of infrastructure can add to a rural community’s charm and appeal, particularly for visitors. At the same time, however, the lack of or inadequate infrastructure can negatively affect rural communities in many areas of life (health, education, business and economic development, etc.).

To get an understanding of how infrastructure transforms communities, there’s no better place to start than the Federal Housing Authority “redlining” housing sioned by the federal.

Too often in our past, infrastructure programs have exacerbated inequality, harmed low-income and minority neighborhoods, imposed disproportionate environmental impacts on vulnerable communities, and failed to advance broad-based prosperity.

The legacy of some past infrastructure decisions continues to impose a social cost on many communities. Because green infrastructure is a distributed solution that requires longer-term maintenance but lower upfront costs, it is ideal for worker cooperatives (democratically owned and operated businesses) and social enterprises (nonprofits that have a fee-for-service component) in low-income communities where jobs are needed.

Green infrastructure. communities, and realign regional growth and development strategies to better connect low-income people and places with regional opportunities. Direct efforts to improve conditions in troubled neighborhoods (through improvements in housing, schools, and other services and amenities) are thus viewed as an important part of the solution.

Despite legislative efforts to dismantle segregation and invest in low-income communities and communities of color, the United States remains deeply segregated.
