On The Web:


The Urban Institute is a nonprofit policy research organization created in 1968 to sharpen thinking about America's problems and efforts to solve them, improve government decisions and their implementation, and increase citizens' awareness about important public choices. Its research agenda includes national issues that reflect, respond to, and at times anticipate society's changing needs. Institute researchers identify and measure social problems, assess their solutions, spot trends, evaluate social and economic programs and policy options, and offer technical assistance in policy and program development. The Urban Institute acts as coordinator of NNIP, providing technical assistance to the partners, processing national data sets for local use, and facilitating the sharing of tools and lessons learned among the partners.
