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:

The Neighborhood Partnership Initiative Program: Providing Focus and Funding for Collaborative Projects That Make a Difference.

Nelson, Kris, and Sara Bielawski.

CURA initiated the Neighborhood Partnership Initiative (NPI) program in 2007 to support collaborations between neighborhood organizations and other local nonprofits. The NPI program, which is funded by the McKnight Foundation, provides grants up to $10,000 to innovative partnerships between neighborhood organizations and organizations that focus on the arts, immigrants/people of color, and youth. The program seeks to increase and strengthen the involvement of underrepresented community members in Twin Cities neighborhood organizations and revitalization. This article describes the principles of the NPI program and presents examples of several successful NPI projects.
