Wagner Named to White House’s Strong Cities, Strong Communities Team

September 17, 2013

The U.S. Department of Housing Preservation and Development has announced that a consortium including the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service will serve as the National Resource Network administrator under the new White House Strong Cities, Strong Communities (SC2) initiative.


The SC2 Network, funded with HUD technical assistance resources, will provide cities with targeted technical assistance to help support locally identified priorities for economic growth and job creation. Announced by the White House in May, the network will receive approximately $10 million in resources.


In addition to Wagner, the consortium includes Public Financial Management, Enterprise Community Partners, HR&A Advisors, and the International City/County Management Association. Wagner’s lead professional for the endeavor is Neil Kleiman, who heads the NYU Wagner Innovation Labs.


“The recent economic recession left many communities throughout the country struggling with ways in which to become economically competitive again,” the White House announcement stated, adding that the network will serve as a “one-stop” shop for economically distressed communities to access a wide array of short-term technical assistance.
