The White House Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI) team has posted the report released at the 2011 Neighborhood Revitalization Conference.
It includes a summary of the NRI, key elements, and summaries of promising practices. Importantly, it also cites specific federal funding streams and examples of how they have been used in neighborhood revitalization efforts across the nation.
The report, "Building Neighborhoods of Opportunity," can be found here. The PowerPoint presentation the NRI team gave is here.

Registration is now open for the July 21-22 Neighborhood Revitalization Conference. We only expect to be able to handle 200-250 registrants, so if you want to come, you should register early. Once we are sold out (which is likely) we will be sold out.
The conference will feature a host of administration speakers and other leaders in the neighborhood space. The current schedule, which is being updated in real time, can be found in the link at the top of this page called NRI Conference (or here).
