Cities of Opportunity are places where all people can reach their full potential and live healthy, productive and fulfilling lives. In these cities, each resident regardless of background, geography, age, race, ethnicity, gender or ableness, has a fair opportunity to:
- Make a stable living, plan for the future, and improve their standard of living;
- Have a healthy, affordable and stable place to call home that is convenient to jobs, schools and resources; and,
- Are connected to the people, places, services and resources that people need in their daily lives.
This promise is all the more elusive in view of the COVID-19 pandemic – and Cities of Opportunity offers the framework to deliver a strong recovery.
