Projects partners contribute to lasting results. Community groups, nonprofits, and government agencies have a vested interest in project outcomes and take responsibility, post-project, to move recommendations forward. They are champions of the issues at hand and play a key role in communicating the relevance and urgency of project inquiry. City buy-in is key to projects that seek systematic or large-scale change, while community partners are critical to on-the-ground action and localized implementation. Projects with both City and community involvement have the best chance of realizing long-term impacts.
