The purpose of the project is to test the hypothesis that regional collaboration and solution-seeking can be an effective way of improving social and economic opportunity and health for all people and places within a region. More specifically, the project has two main objectives:

  • To identify and curate examples of policy and practice that demonstrate boundary-crossing, multi-sector solutions to regional challenges that advance opportunity, health, and well-being in a region without leaving behind rural areas and low-income people and people of color.
  • To use the learning and insights from these examples to inform and inspire action among local, state, and national leadership in the public, private and philanthropic sectors by showing how, and under what conditions, regional solutions can be effective, and to articulate policy, research, and practice agendas that can be supportive.
