As part of the U.S. preparations for Habitat II: The Second Global Conference on Human Settlements, the Department of Housing and Urban Development sponsored the National Excellence Awards for The City Summit to identify and share the best of the American community-building experience. With the help of experts and practitioners from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, the competition identified 25 of the most innovative and successful efforts to promote affordable housing, economic development, education and job training, public safety, and environmental protection in cities and towns across the country. This report is a description of those programs. By demonstrating how local initiatives can help link residents of distressed communities to the larger economic and social mainstream, these success stories are both instructive and inspirational. While such examples are rarely replicable, they are often adaptable to reflect the particular circumstances of a community. By offering lessons about the organizational, financial, and management elements critical to success, these examples will benefit others who engage in the community-building process. (Authors)
