Fighting poverty through community development
The Secretaries point to integration initiatives across the country, under the umbrellas of the Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative and Strong Cities, Strong Communities, as examples of integrated community development work. "As community developers have long recognized, the problems that contribute to poverty are very much interconnected. While poverty cannot be explained as merely a consequence of housing, education and health, each poses unique challenges to low-income families at the community level – and none can be understood independently of one another." They call for the empowerment of federal, regional, and local officials with a wide range of responsibilities to break barriers, effectively meet community needs, and spark economic development.
