Project Community is an initiative of the Center for Urban policy Research at Rutgers supported in part by a grant from the Fund for New Jersey and the Ford Foundation, to provide research assistance to New Jersey's community based organizations. Project Community responds to requests for research on community development projects which CBOs plan to implement. The aim of Project Community is to help CBOs further their goal of rebuilding distressed communities. Project Community is part of the Center for Urban Policy Research's 25 years of service to New Jersey's governments, industries and CBOs on matters of poverty, housing, economic development, land use, transportation, technology and the environment.
Project Community draws upon the talent and resources of Rutgers University's faculty, staff and students from the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and other disciplines to carry out its mission. An advisory board of nonprofit community development corporations and their representatives exists to make policy recommendations for the Project Community effort.
