The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Home Improvement through NRP: An Analysis of the Distribution of Funds for Single-Family Home Improvement Projects.

Nesse, Katherine and Barbara Lukermann.

The Neighborhood Revitalization Program (NRP) was created in response to the decline of Minneapolis's neighborhoods in the late 1980s. NRP has funded neighborhood improvement projects in two 10-year phases. This report analyzes the distribution of single-family home improvement loans and grants during Phase I to identify income characteristics of those receiving loans and relate those characteristics to three types of neighborhoods: protection, revitalization, and redirection.
