In the Face of Gentrification: Case Studies of Local Efforts to Mitigate Displacement

In the Face of Gentrification: Case Studies of Local Efforts to Mitigate Displacement (100 pages, PDF), a new report from the Urban Institute, presents strategies used by nonprofits, for-profit developers, and city agencies to ensure that low- to moderate-income residents are able to remain in their homes as neighborhoods gentrify. Citing examples from Atlanta, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Sacramento, and St. Petersburg, Florida, the report assesses the impact of local housing markets, regional politics, and the organizational capacity of nonprofit groups in mitigating gentrification's worst effects.
