The Integration Initiative: Final Report

In January 2010, Living Cities launched The Integration Initiative (TII) to support “bold, promising approaches that have the potential to transform the lives of low-income people and the communities in which they live.”

In 2014, Living Cities launched phase two of The Integration initiative (TII), a systems change effort to improve the lives of low-income people in areas such as workforce development, economic development, equitable transit-oriented development, education, and health . To implement TII, Living Cities’ staff worked with a cross section of leaders in select cities to intentionally apply collective impact, public-sector innovation, capital innovation, and real-time sharing of learning.

In this final report, you will find a high-level overview of the main findings of our work of TII’s partner sites and initiative directors: Robin Brule in Albuquerque, Kurt Sommer in Baltimore, Tawanna Black in Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Ashleigh Gardeire and Judith Dangerfield in New Orleans, and Ellie Rossiter and Theo Miller in San Francisco.
