Four years ago, Brookings and the Rockefeller Foundation formed an initiative to expand economic growth and opportunity around the country. The Project on State and Metropolitan Innovation (PSMI) has since worked with 22 metros, including Northeast Ohio, and seven states to deploy economic development strategies that create and retain high-quality jobs while also expanding opportunity for all. The work of our Fund and our partners is highlighted in a new report; it’s encouraging to see how G&O is working in other regions as well.
The author of the report, Pete Carlson of Regional Growth Strategies, has been sharing findings through a series of Brookings blog posts. Our Fund is featured in posts on funding for regional strategies and developing more and better leaders.
