The future of community development

Grogan starts by stating that community development must focus on human development. To do this well, the field needs new tools and strategies, including geographically broadly-based intermediaries, local collaboration and pay for success model. Perhaps at least as important, it is essential to communities that the country get out of political gridlock, so as to preserve and enhance the capacity of government to invest in the future.

Future of community development: How CDFIs can best ride the impact investing wave

Bugg-Levine states that changing needs and changing funding sources require that community development reinvent itself. Impact investing can be a major new funding source, but community development risks being left behind unless it can meet the needs of impact investors for diversified investment, national investing platforms that invest locally, off-balance sheet activities (i.e., not enterprise funding), and convincing impact. More broadly, the industry needs to focus on solving problems, recognizing that investment is only one part of the solution. NFF is using a strategy it calls ...
