CaRDI compiles additional publications and resources on a variety of important community and economic development topics. CaRDI publications are designed to provide our readers with research-based, policy-relevant information to help foster dialogue at the local, regional and state-level, and to inform public and private decision-making around critical community and economic development issues. In addition, we highlight publications written by colleagues and other partners that we think our stakeholders will find useful.
