Lincoln Institute of Land Policy Mission
The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy seeks to improve quality of life through the effective use, taxation, and stewardship of land. A nonprofit private operating foundation whose origins date to 1946, the Lincoln Institute researches and recommends creative approaches to land as a solution to economic, social, and environmental challenges. Through education, training, publications, and events, we integrate theory and practice to inform public policy decisions worldwide. With locations in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Washington, DC; Phoenix; and Beijing, we organize our work around the achievement of six goals: low-carbon, climate-resilient communities and regions; efficient and equitable tax systems; reduced poverty and spatial inequality; fiscally healthy communities and regions; sustainably managed land and water resources; and functional land markets and reduced informality.
Center for Community Investment Overview
The Center for Community Investment (CCI) at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy works to ensure all communities can unlock the capital needed to overcome disinvestment and ensure all people have what they need to thrive. We help communities set the stage for investments that advance their goals by helping leaders clarify local priorities, enlist institutions that could contribute to success, develop a pipeline of investments to achieve the vision, and change policies and practices to create a more supportive financing environment. We have a well-established framework and approach that community partnerships can use to mobilize investment capital to create opportunities for affordable housing, jobs, fresh foods, and other drivers of good health while making communities more cohesive, resilient, and environmentally sustainable in the face of climate change.
CCI, backed by several major national foundations, encourages innovation and shared learning among a broad set of stakeholders, from mission-driven investors, banks and intermediaries to community leaders, policymakers, local officials, anchor institutions and others with an interest in achieving better outcomes for all people.
CCI is seeking an enthusiastic people-connector with a strong learning orientation to join our team. The right candidate enjoys scanning the field to learn from others and can hold the details of iteratively launching, evaluating, and improving projects.
