Memphis must increase allocation of resources for neighborhood revitalization, particularly for housing, economic development, and workforce development entities that target adults.

Memphis must increase the number of high-capacity, place-based nonprofits, particularly among CDCs and within the economic, workforce development, and housing sectors.

Memphis must invest in its resident leaders to integrate community voices in the decision-making process and for lasting change.
