MacArthur grantee Living Cities, a nationwide collaboration of 22 major foundations and banks dedicated to urban revitalization, launched a new effort to help five regions tackle barriers to opportunity for low-income residents. The Integration Initiative will provide at least $80 million in grants, loans, and program-related investments to help residents improve education, housing, health care, transit, and jobs.

The Foundation supports neighborhood revitalization, prevention of youth violence, and the use of information technology to enhance governance, the social sector, and quality of life. MacArthur is also exploring new ways to understand the challenges faced by cities around the world, and how to plan, manage, and govern to address them.
