Strategy EA4.2: Provide workshops and training opportunities to economic and community developers, neighborhood associations, and local government staff, regarding the Asset-Based Approach to community development.

Strategy Description

Asset-based community development approaches focus on individual and community skills, talents, and assets rather than issues and needs. It is a grassroots, ground-up approach to catalyzing change to benefit a community. There are many resources dedicated to structuring an asset-based approach to community development. The Asset-Based Community Development Institute provides a number of case studies, toolkits, and materials to assist in the development of an asset-based strategy.
