Community Building Resources

The Roundtable on Comprehensive Community Initiatives was established in 1992 as a forum in which people engaged in the field of comprehensive community initiatives (CCIs)-including foundation sponsors, directors, technical assistance providers, evaluators, and public sector officials-could meet to discuss the lessons that are being learned by initiatives across the country and to work on common problems they are facing.

Comprehensive Community Initiatives (CCIs) are neighborhood-based efforts that seek improved outcomes for individuals and families as well as improvements in neighborhood conditions by working comprehensively across social, economic and physical sectors. Additionally, CCIs operate on the principle that community building -- that is, strengthening institutional capacity at the neighborhood level, enhancing social capital and personal networks, and developing leadership -- is a necessary aspect of the process of transforming distressed neighborhoods.
