Impact of the Minneapolis Neighborhood Revitalization Program on Neighborhood Organizations.

Goetz, Edward G. and Mara S. Sidney.

The inauguration of the Minneapolis Neighborhood Revitalization Program in 1991 and the unprecedented level of funding it provides to neighborhood groups gives the program the potential to significantly affect neighborhoods and their organizations. This study looks at the impact of NRP on three neighborhood organizations: the Whittier Alliance, the Stevens Square Community Organization, and the Jordan Area Community Council. Intensive in-person interviews with neighborhood activists and city staff members revealed the changes each neighborhood group went through as they prepared their NRP plan. The study concludes that NRP in deepening the bias toward middle class, white property owners and that in two of the neighborhoods it has increased factionalism. A summary of the study appeared in the June 1994 CURA Reporter.
