We deliver game-changing research, tools, and solutions to create sustainable + equitable communities. We help neighborhoods, cities, and regions work better, for everyone.

Founded in 1978, the Center for Neighborhood Technology is a national leader in promoting more livable and sustainable urban communities. We research, invent, and test urban strategies that use resources more efficiently and more equitably.

We believe that cities, thanks to their dense population and shared resources, are uniquely positioned to respond to the growing concerns about sustainability, resource efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions. By building on what exists – infrastructure, natural resources, organizations, and institutions – our initiatives uncover important hidden assets, enhancing urban communities and the lives of their residents.
