Community & Government Partners
CURA provides applied research and technical assistance to nonprofit groups, neighborhood organizations, and local and state government agencies in Minnesota. Our approach is grounded in the idea that all participants are equal partners in the research process. CURA also publishes policy- and practice-oriented research reports on urban and regional affairs issues relevant to our community and government partners.
CURA houses more than a dozen programs that provide assistance for government- and community-initiated projects, each with their own eligibiliy requirements and applications procedures.
