Poverty is touching more lives and penetrating more communities than ever. Investing in What Works for America's Communities (PDF) is a new book that calls on leaders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to build on what we know is working to move the needle on poverty.

The book's impressive list of authors represents a broad range of sectors including federal agencies, philanthropy, housing academia, health, and the private sector.

This collection of essays examines what we can learn from the history of community development and provides dozens of innovative ideas for working with new partners, creating new financing tools, and leveraging new technologies to bring opportunities to America's struggling communities.
