Resources for Place-Based Initiatives

In this brief, we review resources that provide more information and guidance on the major steps discussed in the Urban Institute brief “Six Steps to Success:” (1) define a set of indicators through which to measure and report results; (2) select target populations and establish baseline population counts and penetration rates; (3)align evidence-based programs to indicators and target populations; (4) inventory available data and decide what original data collection is necessary; (5) establish an appropriate data system; and (6) collect and report on indicators.
