Resilient Communities


Croatan Institute is deeply engaged in helping urban and rural communities develop more resilient approaches to place-based economic development. The Institute’s work involves rigorous research, analysis, and mapping of regional value chains, developing frameworks for place-based investment, convening complex community meetings to develop new insights about common connections, and providing technical assistance and training in these areas. The Institute brings a strong sense of both social and environmental purpose to all of our engagements, and we have rapidly developed a reputation for being a trusted partner and ally in wide-ranging intiatives across a diverse array of sectors.
