Community and Neighborhood Revitalization Professional Certificate Program
Every city in the United States has neighborhoods that are troubled, with deteriorating housing, streets and sidewalks in disrepair, crime that keeps families indoors and residents who have lost their sense of community pride. Residents and professionals representing all sectors — from community-based organizations and private foundations to government and corporate America — are involved in neighborhood revitalization efforts. They are working to create and nurture more livable places where families can live, work and play.
The Community and Neighborhood Revitalization Professional Certificate focuses on transforming neighborhoods that lack vitality and suffer from stagnant or declining property values into neighborhoods of choice — places where residents and businesses want to invest their time, energy and money. Participants who earn this professional certificate will possess the knowledge and tools needed to facilitate positive neighborhood change.
