Urban PolicyWorking Group

The Urban Policy Working Groups focus on initiatives that not only build on Administration priorities, but also embody a holistic and integrated approach to urban policy. These proposed initiatives recognize that our national urban policy should be flexible enough to adapt to (and indeed should strengthen the connection between) the multiple geographic scales — neighborhood, city, and metropolitan — at which leaders act to address increasingly complex challenges.

Urban Tour

The Urban Tour is an important illustration of the Administration’s commitment to Urban and Metropolitan America, and reflects the Administration’s bottom-up approach to reshaping the Federal-urban partnership. The tour approaches urban-metro regions as assets, and highlights innovations that are interdisciplinary and that are to the benefit of entire regions.
